As race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta hots up day by day, a Jubilee party lawmaker seems to have let the cat out of the bag.
2022 political plans on Tuesday unfolded when Kiambu Women Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba took the microphone at the late veteran politician Nginyo Kariuki’s funeral.
The woman MP hinted that Central Kenya will support Baringo Senator Gideon Moi for the 2022 presidency.
The lawmaker allied to the Kieleweke wing of Jubilee, vowed to support the son of the the late retired president Daniel Moi in a possible power shake up ahead of the upcoming general election.
While heaping praises on the veteran politician Nginyo, Wamuchomba disclosed she was advised to support Gideon for the country’s top seat by the late politician.
“After the handshake, I looked for Nginyo Kariuki on phone and asked him whether to support the process or not. He told me if Gideon Moi is involved then you should support it. To you Gideon I want you to know we got the message and all our eyes are on you. Please revive KANU and we shall be with you,” she said.
During the burial of the late former President Mzee Daniel Moi, Gideon was handed the Mzee’s famous ‘rungu ya nyayo’, taking over Mzee Moi’s political mantle.
Gideon will now have to battle it out with Deputy President Dr William Ruto for the control of Rift Valley region.
