Monday May 18, 2020 – Baringo senator Gideon Moi has moved to sharpen his political weapons ahead of the 2022 presidential elections.
This is after he met a section of Rift Valley leaders to strategize their 2022 campaigns.
The KANU party leader held a five-hour closed door meeting to plan how to defeat Deputy President William Ruto who is presumed to be the region’s kingpin.
He met Elgeyo-Marakwet Governor, Alex Tolgos, MPs Joshua Kutuny, Silas Tiren, William Kamket and former East Africa Community Minister, Musa Sirma, at his home in Kabarak.
Among other issues that the leaders discussed included the current political happenings in the country and how to position the KANU party ahead of the 2022 presidential elections.
They also discussed the impact of COVID19 on Rift Valley residents and how to help people overcome the pandemic that is threatening livelihoods.
Further, they talked extensively on measures to be undertaken to alleviate the suffering of victims of floods that have affected parts of Rift Valley.
Although the political aspect of the meeting was kept under the wraps, political pundits argue that Gideon became more aggressive after signing a post-election coalition agreement with the Jubilee Party.
Moi is said to be targeting to overtake the Deputy President for him to hold firm the Rift Valley but it would not be an easy task for him.
To achieve his mission, Gideon is said to have his eyes focused on Chama Cha Mashinani’s Isaac Ruto who also fell out with the DP prior to the 2017 elections.
