Moi meets Joho [Photos]
The two leaders are seen as DP Ruto's likely challengers in 2022.
Speaking after the meeting, Governor Joho invited President Uhuru Kenyatta to visit Mombasa after the famous handshake with Raila Odinga.
DP Ruto's challengers
Moi and Joho have both declared their political ambitions for the highest seat in the land and are seen by many to be among Deputy President William Ruto's likely challengers in 2022 when President Uhuru Kenyatta completes his second and final term in office.
An IPSOS Poll conducted in March showed a majority of Kenyans at 30 per cent believed DP Ruto was likely to become president after Kenyatta.
Senator Moi and Governor Joho tied at second with 14 per cent.
In April, KANU Secretary General and Moi's close ally Nick Salat revealed an elaborate countrywide tour aimed at helping the independence party chairman build a national profile and sell him as the best successor to President Kenyatta.
He disclosed plans of a national tour by the Baringo Senator which would commence with an extensive visit of the Coast region to be hosted by Governor Joho.
“After Mombasa, we will attend a church service in Nyeri or Muranga at a date to be announced next month. We believe our party leader is the best man to succeed Uhuru,” Salat said.
Moi is also expected to tour the Nyanza after the region endorsed Odinga’s decision to work with President Kenyatta.
