Since the fallout between the president and his deputy William Ruto there has been many concerns on who the president of the republic of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta shall support come the 2022.
In what happens to be a big blow to the deputy president William Ruto, Kiambu Kanu officials have thrown their weight behind Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, saying he should take the mantle from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The anti-Ruto team said that they have started early campaigns in the Mt Kenya region to popularize Gedion Moi’s presidential bid come the year 2022 and they will do all that is humanly possible to ensure that he clinches the top seat.
The Baringo Senator Gedion Moi seems to have won the heart of the president as he was sent to represent the country in the Malawi president Chakwera inauguration ceremony recently.
“We fully support President Uhuru Kenyatta and the BBI agenda. We want to popularise our party but not interfere with the current administration. Kanu is the only party we have in Kenya; the rest are movements used by their leaders for elections”, Kiambu Jubilee Officials warned.
The handshake between the president and the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga led to sharp division in the Mt Kenya which saw the formation of two rivalry groups; Kieleweke side and the Tanga Tanga group that is affiliated to the deputy president
The battle to control the riftvalley between Ruto and Former president’s son Gedion Moi has continued to intensify as the late Daniel Moi gave his son blessings to become the Riftvalley politics kingpin.
