Kajiado Central M.P Elijah Memusi has urged Baringo Senator Gideon Moi to work with President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga come 2022.
Senator Gideon Moi and MP Elijah Memusi put their political heads together on November 1.
Memusi said Moi should form a pact with the two leaders together with Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula in the 2022 presidential elections.
Memusi said the country needs a leader who has the people’s interests at heart and is focused on moving the country forward and not one who is well known for corruption and pondering public coffers.
Addressing mourners at a funeral in Lorngosua Kajiado on Thursday, Memusi reiterated his support for Odinga and added that they were waiting for Odinga to inform them on whom to support for presidency.
The MP said with the unity of the aforementioned leaders’ unity, Deputy President William Ruto should move on to lead the country’s opposition.
“What I am saying is that Kenya can forge ahead with Raila, Uhuru, Mudavadi, Wetangula, and Kalonzo. The other one I have not mentioned can go to the opposition,” said Memusi.
He called upon Kajiado Maasai not to accept goodies of any kind from corrupt leaders who have messed the country’s economy, adding that it is not common for the community to accept such.
Tiaty M.P William Kamket asked the Maasai community to back Moi’s bid for the top position in 2022 as he is the only leader among those who had declared their interest in the position who will have their interest at heart.
Moi, who was present, called upon the Maasai community to support him adding that he was seeking visionary leaders who can work with him.
“I have come here today to condole with the community and not to engage in politics. But again when you see us here, we are following footsteps of our cows and we feel at home here,” said Moi.
He said he is also in Kajiado to seek friendly leaders and already Kajiado East MP, Peris Tobiko had accepted to walk with him in his political journey.
“My father had the Maasai community at heart and he has even sent me with his greetings. Today, I have come with Sh500, 000 for a construction of a school administration block here because the Maasai are my people,” said Moi.
He steered off the national politics and instead urged the Maasai community to protect their God-given resources like land and not to sell to outsiders.
