Moi makes important announcement on 2022 race

The announcement by Moi comes after recent major realignments in Kenya's political scene.

Moi indicated that he is welcome to the forging of partnerships aimed at succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.

Speaking to the congregation at the Full Gospel Church of Kenya in Kabarnet, Moi said he would welcome talks to build alliances ahead of 2022 though he conceded it wasn't yet time for politics.

The Baringo Senator urged his supporters to remain patient promising that he will soon declare his stand regarding 2022.

“Everybody is my friend so there is no harm if anyone decides to approach me for visionary talks meant to take over leadership and drive this country forward,” Moi stated.

2022 rivalry

The son to former President Daniel Moi is on record saying that he will vie for the Presidency in 2022, a move that has put him in a direct collision course with Deputy President William Ruto, who has already declared he will also vie for the highest seat in the land after President Kenyatta completes his term in 2022.

Political alignments

Moi's statement comes in the wake of major political alignments following a truce declared by President Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga weeks ago.

The two leaders agreed to set aside their political differences for the sake of national unity in order to forge the country forward to prosperity.

The truce which caught many by surprise with NASA co-principals who have publicly stated that the new forged alliance was only between two individuals since they were not consulted and was not properly structured.

Last week Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua told Baringo residents that he had talks with Gideon about the 2022 presidential race following similar discussions by the two in February.
