In Summary
  • Osotsi said ODM, ANC, Kanu and Wiper parties are constituting an new team in preparation for President Kenyatta’s succession.
  • Moi said he is moving across the country consulting, consolidating and making friends who can transform Kenya into a better place.

A group of lawmakers has urged Baringo Senator Gideon Moi to join hands with Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi to form a strong party that will take over from Jubilee in 2022.

The proposal was endorsed by Mr Christopher Aseka (Khwisero), Mr Godfrey Osotsi (Nominated), Mr William Kamket (Tiaty), Mr Silas Tiren (Moiben), Busia Woman Representative Florence Mutua and former MPs Cyrus Jirongo and Julius Arunga.

They spoke during two harambees presided over by Mr Moi in Kakamega Town and Mulwanda market in Khwisero Sub-County on Sunday.

COHESION

Mr Aseka said the person to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta will come from the alliance formed by the two.

“I am confident that the next captain for Kenya will be Mudavadi deputised by Moi or vice versa, as Mr Kenyatta and (Orange Democratic Movement leader) Raila Odinga sit on the bench as head coaches,” Mr Aseka said.

Mr Jirongo said Kenyans need to promote peace, love and unity following the truce between President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga on March 9.

"The best captains to promote the cohesion are Moi and Mudavadi," he said.

“President Daniel arap Moi was in power for 24 years because he understood the importance of peace and unity. I know his son has inherited the same, and together with Mr Mudavadi he can take the country in the right direction. The other camp only knows chest-thumping.”

ALLIANCE

Mr Osotsi said ODM, ANC, Kanu and Wiper parties are constituting an new team in preparation for President Kenyatta’s succession.

“We are preparing our troops before we declare who will be what. Political kingpins from all regions will sit and give us a presidential flagbearer,” he said.

The lawmaker asked the Baringo senator to reach out to Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and "include him in the team that will form the next government".
