KANU to roll out its plans on September 30, 2021
Race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta gains momentum as KANU party leader Gideon Moi declares his presidential bid.
Speaking yesterday at his Sacho home in Kenya’s Rift Valley, Moi said he is optimistic of clinching the seat that has attracted political heavyweights, including former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and deputy president William Ruto among others.
He rallied his Kalenjin community to back up his presidential bid.
Simultaneously, he announced that the party will hold a meeting on September 30 at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi to make a statement and outline their strategies for securing the seat.
“I’ve already made my final decision, and no matter how difficult the duel becomes, I’m not backing down. I’m only looking for support on this journey from my community, not backstabbing. If I lose, I will have done so in a humble manner rather than being disliked, and if I win, it will work in our favour as well, and I am confident that we will defeat our opponents and win the presidency.
“I vow that after the Bomas of Kenya announcement next week, I will return home to seek your approval because if my political goal is to succeed, we must speak with one voice,” stated Senator Moi.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
