Gideon Moi, the son of the second president of Kenya, the late Daniel Arap Moi, has been asked to declare his political stand.
Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago has told the Baringo Senator to declare his 2022 presidential bid to stop leaving the people guessing whether he is interested or not.
Governor Mandago was speaking during a wedding ceremony at Marigat in Kenya’s Rift Valley.
He urged Senator Moi to emulate Deputy President William Ruto, who has told Kenyans that he is interested in succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Time is ticking as we approach the next year’s elections, and Gideon is still silent, he should speak out now.
“As Rift Valley leaders we would want to know early if Gideon Moi in interested in the top seat or not so that we can join hands together to unify the Kalenjin nation ahead of the 2022 polls,” said Jackson Mandago.
Mandago further urged the second-term governor to meet Ruto to discuss the region’s political future.
Moi was also present in the ceremony, only wished the couple a happy marriage. He is one of the principals of One Kenya Alliance alongside ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper, and Moses Wetangula (Ford-Kenya).©Standard Gazette, 2021.
