Uhuru nominates Gideon Moi’s rival for top job

Has KANU been shortchanged in Uhuru's cabinet appointments?

The president instead picked Moi’s rival Simon Chelugui, giving him a Cabinet slot to head the ministry of Water and Sanitation.

Chelugui who ran on a Jubilee party ticket gave Gideon Moi a run for his money in the Baringo senatorial race with their supporters clashing repeatedly.

Although Moi emerged victorious in the race, Chelugui who is a close ally to Deputy William Ruto commands massive following and should he endorse Ruto for 2022 then Moi will lose significant support in his Baringo home turf.

Earlier on, KANU Secretary General Nick Salat admitted to a local Newspaper that the party had indeed submitted a list of nominees to the president to be considered for slots in the Cabinet.

The list reportedly included Nick Salat, Kiprono Kitony among others who are affiliated to the Baringo Senator.

KANU was eyeing slots after entering a pre-election pact with Jubilee party that saw the party support Uhuru Kenyatta’s reelection bid.

Media reports also indicated that nomination of cabinet secretaries was threatening to tear Jubilee Party apart with William Ruto’s allies strongly opposed to the inclusion of politicians/people allied to KANU in the new cabinet.

Both Moi and Ruto have expressed interest in the 2022 presidential race and are consolidating their support in readiness for 2022.
