Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has lashed at the Jubilee leaders who were on campaign trail drumming up support for his opponent Simon Chelugui last week Saturday saying their main agenda was to finish him politically.
Speaking on Sunday after attending a church service at Talai AIC in Baringo Central, Moi said that the leaders were not coming to look for votes for Uhuru Kenyatta but they toured the county to campaign against him.
The KANU chairman revealed that the Jubilee leaders are not impressed with his political supremacy in the Rift region who he alleges they were send by Deputy President William Ruto to totally kill his political ambitions.
“They were here the other day but their main agenda was to see that my popularity in the area diminishes. I wish they were campaigning for themselves but it is sad that they have to fulfill their master’s (Ruto) wish” he stated.
Moreover he hinted that he will not succumb to any political threat or pressure since he will still continue with his campaigns peacefully.
Moi further revealed that his 2022 presidential dreams are still alive and he will continue pursying them till the end, saying that his plan is not to divide the Kalenjin community.
“Everyone has his own supporters and we will all contest and whoever wins then that will be the decision made by the citizens” said Moi adding that outsiders are fighting hard to see him lose.
Jubilee leaders who traversed through the county on Saturday led by Uasin Gishu county Governor Jackson Mandago accused senator Moi of planning to divide the Kalenjins for his own political interests at same time they urged him to step down for Ruto so that he might be as well be supported in the future.
“Ruto is only one step away from the country’s top seat and we as leaders from the Rift valley region will not allow any other person (especially a Kalenjin) to disrupt that” said Mandago at Kabarnet on Saturday.
Moi who is seeking a second term in senate wondered why Jubilee is investing on a lot of machinery to see him fall yet he has thrown all his support behind President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reelection bid.
“If they had come to fulfill all the promises they made to the people of Baringo then that could have been better” he said. He urged locals to pray for him in his political journey and for peace to prevail in the county and the country at large.
The Jubilee leaders pleaded with residents of Baringo to vote for Simon Chelugui who emerged the winner in the April party primaries instead of the incumbent who they accuse of doing less to fight with insecurity in the county.
Baringo Central Parliamentary hopeful Eddy Koimett who was with the senator during the church service also appealed to politicians to shun away from making negative utterances which might spur up animosity.
