A section of Baringo MCAs has advised KANU leader Gideon Moi to support Deputy President William Ruto’s quest for the 2022 presidency if he wants to remain politically relevant after the next General Election.
Led by Lembus Kwen Member of County Assembly Lawi Tallam, the legislators advised Baringo Senator Moi to pull out of the recently formed One Kenya Alliance saying Moses Wetang’ula, Kalonzo Musyoka, and Musalia Mudavadi are only after Gideon Moi’s money.
“To remain relevant in the politics of Kenya, support William Samoi Ruto and he will give you whatever seat you want as you prepare to take over the button from him,
“And I have told you over and again that the other One Kenya Alliance principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula have no good intentions for you. What they want from you is your father’s inheritance,” he said.
Tallam, who is also the leader of the Majority in Baringo County, was speaking to journalists on Thursday, July 1, ahead of the much-anticipated tour of President Uhuru Kenyatta to the Rift Valley region.
This comes barely a day after principals of the One Kenya Alliance held a meeting on Wednesday, June 30 to cement their union.
Their meeting came amid wide reports that their union was collapsing and they are divided between reviving the NASA coalition and joining the Jubilee-ODM merger.
Speaking minutes after the meeting, the Senator who was ranked among the most silent legislators for the year 2020 stressed that there was need for the leaders to hold on amid first approaching 2022 General Election.
“We will continue to forge solid partnerships with leaders who share our vision for a united and prosperous nation where our people have equal opportunity to thrive in their economic and social endeavors,” Moi said.
