Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has lashed out at Deputy President William Ruto, whom he accuses of inciting Kenyans every weekend at church services across the country. The KANU chairman, while speaking at the AIPCA Church in Chaka asked the church to shun politicians using the altar to advance their political narratives as well as attack those with whom they do not share the same political views.
The Baringo senator is currently preparing his troops for a fierce political duel with Deputy President William Ruto in the Rift Valley, where the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) enjoys near-fanatical support.
KANU, led by former President Moi’s last born son is currently a part of the One Kenya Alliance (OKA), bringing together Amani National Congress (ANC) of Musalia Mudavadi, Wiper Democratic Movement of Kalonzo Musyoka, and Moses Wetangula’s Ford Kenya.
On the other hand, the independent party has a post-election pact with the ruling Jubilee party- an agreement that ends in 2022 unless ratified by the outfit’s highest decision organ, NEC.
Despite going against the grain in the Rift Valley, Senator Moi has been urging allies of Deputy President William Ruto to read the mood of the country and join him in forming the next government.
”We need to be in government, we cannot afford to be in opposition. Wherever I am we are headed in the right direction. If you have lost direction, I am there, I have the right political connection. You just look for me and I will show you the way,” Gideon said in Baringo two weeks ago.
