Kanu chairman, Gideon Moi, on Sunday held a five-hour meeting with a section of leaders from the Rift Valley at his Kabarak home.

Leaders who attended the meeting included Elgeyo-Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos, MPs Joshua Kutuny, Silas Tiren, William Kamket and former East Africa Community Minister Musa Sirma.

At the meeting, the leaders discussed the political happenings in the country, the impact of Covid-19 on the region’s residents, and how to assist people to overcome the pandemic.

Further, the leaders deliberated on measures to be taken to alleviate the suffering of locals hit by flash floods.

Moi, who is also the Baringo Senator, has been on a mission to strengthen the former ruling party, having signed a post-election pact with Jubilee Party.

As President Uhuru Kenyatta cracks the whip at the troubled ruling party, he brought in to the fold Moi, who has for the most part been lurking behind the scenes as 2022 succession politics hots up.

Moi’s close ally, Senator Samuel Poghisio was handed the Majority Leader’s post at the Senate, shortly after the Jubilee-Kanu pact was revealed.

Gideon has been engaged in supremacy battles for the control of the vote-rich Rift Valley region with the Deputy President William Ruto.

This week, Moi’s ally, Chama Cha Mashinani founder Isaac Ruto, said that he will form a post-election pact with Jubilee Party ahead of the 2022 General Election.
