Baringo county majority leader Lawi Tallam has questioned Baringo Senator Gideon Moi’s capacity to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
According to the Lembus Kwen Member of County Assembly, KANU chairman has no development record in his own jurisdiction and thus can not claim to do anything as president
“Being the majority leader in Baringo County, I have traversed the entire County but I have not seen a single project under Gideon Moi’s name even a Sunday school or a kindergarten. How will you lead the country yet you have failed in your own backyard?’’ He wondered.
The Ward representative instead drummed up support for Deputy President William Ruto saying he helped build churches, roads and other infrastructure yet he was not from the royal family.
The politician also said Gideon Moi has no political clout and has done very little to built raise his political profile in the country thus not fit to be president.
Kivumbi.co.ke has learnt that this is not the first time the MCA is launching an attack against the Baringo senator.
Early this year, the county legislator was captured on camera condemning Moi’s family for the poverty he says has stricken Baringo residents and the entire nation.
“Let me tell Raymond Moi that Baringo MCAs are not fools. The people of Baringo are suffering yet they produced the longest-serving president of the Republic of Kenya which is your father thus it suffices to say that your father is the root cause for the poverty our people are currently facing,” he said.
It is noteworthy to remember Baringo county was the first to shoot down the BBI bill despite the fact Gideon Moi has been supporting it.
Moi recently teamed up with Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula and Musaia Mudavadi led Amani National Congress to form the One Kenya Alliance.
The KANU party leader has not officially announced that he will vie for the highly expected presidential contest but rumor has it that political power brokers are angling for him and Musalia Mudavadi.
