Rift Valley elders offer to reconcile DP Ruto and Gideon Moi
The Rift Valley Council of Elders has offered to steer reconciliation talks between Deputy President William Ruto and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi ahead of the 2022 elections.
The elders through their patron Gilbert Kabage, warned that political divisions threaten to cost the region the presidency in 2022.
This comes a day after Deputy President Ruto visited former President Daniel Moi at his Kabarak home, but failed to meet him.
Mr Ruto was told that the former president could not meet with him as he was undergoing a routine physiotherapy session with his doctors.
The DP’s failure to meet Mr Moi sparked a debate in the political circles with a section of leaders blaming the younger Moi of having a hand in Thursday’s events.
The elders on Friday said uniting the two, would be for the good of the Rift Valley region ahead of 2022 presidential race.
“What happened in Kabarak is wrong. If the two do not reconcile and go the direction we want, then it will be very unfortunate,” said Mr Kabage.
He added: “If someone blocked the Deputy President from seeing Mzee Moi, he should apologise and even go to church and repent”.
