KANU boss Gideon Moi’s allies and its network of Rift Valley supporters decamp to DP William Ruto's camp threaten to disintegrate KANU ahead of the 2022 elections.

Former President Daniel Arap Moi's son is not at ease and has been left in shock.

This was evident Monday when Cherang’any MP Joshua Kutuny accused him of “not having the interests of the people of Rift Valley at heart”.
Other two major players Emurua Dikir MP Johana Ng’eno and West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo have already declared their move to Deputy President William Ruto.

Hon. Ng’eno has publicly declared that he will henceforth support the DP. According to him, the mantle of leadership will head to Nandi in 2022 through Ruto and thereafter to the populous Kipsigis.

Kutuny said he believed Gideon "is better than the DP but he has turned out to be a wolf in a sheep’s skin”.

“Gideon is now an enemy of the people of Rift Valley. He is identifying civil servants especially CEOs and managing directors from the region then engineering their sacking on the basis that they are allied to DP,” he added.

The fallout between Kutuny and Gideon started when the changes were made at the Kenya Rural Roads Authority.
Both had agreed that Luka Kimeli, the former Kura managing director and a Cherang’any constituent, be approved as the director-general.

However, Gideon, according to Kutuny, went against the deal "which had been approved by the President" and instead urged the appointment of Philemon Kandie to the post. Kandie is from Baringo.

“We met and agreed that Kimeli will be confirmed but I was surprised to see a different name. Gideon wants to eat the fruits of Kieleweke yet he is a passive member. In fact, he has not participated in it but now wants to be the one controlling our plans,” he said.

“This was the point of departure between me and Gideon and we will deal with him and his Kanu if this is his style of leadership.”

Kutuny also accused Moi of manufacturing changes at the Kenya Power board which led to the former Nandi Woman Representative Zipporah Kering sacked.

“Gideon has been identifying Kalenjins who are perceived to support Ruto then he sacrifices them so that he gets to appoint those who come from his home county and who are loyal to him. Going forward, we will not allow anyone from Rift Valley to be removed,” the MP said.
