Gideon western visit fuels talk of 2022 alliance with ANC

Kanu chairman Gideon Moi is positioning himself as a sober, clean and non-abrasive politician as he sets his eyes on the presidency.
His allies are clear that the Baringo Senator is in the race for the top seat.
Mr Moi has steered away from declaring that he will run but indications are he is preparing for something big.

PARTNERSHIP
He has met ODM leader Raila Odinga, Amani National Congress chief Musalia Mudavadi and Wiper boss Kalonzo Musyoka.
He has also met Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho who declared his willingness for a partnership.
Mr Moi’s confidantes, including Kanu Secretary-General Nick Salat, have said he is no pushover and his eyes are on the presidency.

REBRANDING
Although he did not pick our calls on Monday, Mr Salat, recently said the party is rebranding in readiness for 2022.
He said Kanu and Mr Moi would work with “like-minded” parties as elections approach.
The senator has visited western Kenya twice in a week.

FAVOUR
Mr Mudavadi says he is ready to work with Mr Moi. On Sunday, he asked the Rift Valley region, where Mr Moi comes from, to back his bid, adding that western supported Mr Daniel arap Moi when he was in power.
“My my community remained loyal to your son for 24 years. You should return the favour by voting for me in 2022,” he said.

DIVIDE
Mr Mudavadi, who presided over a fundsdrive in Keiyo South Constituency, Elgeyo-Marakwet County, said he would reconcile Deputy President William Ruto and Senator Moi.
North Rift Kanu chairman Paul Kibet admits that the party is reaching out to other outfits ahead of 2022.
“Kanu will work with leaders from across the political divide in the spirit of uniting the country as we see how 2022 will work out. We will shock the nation,” Mr Kibet said.

SOLUTIONS
He added that there are challenges facing the country “which Kanu is determined to offer solutions”.
According to Mr Kibet, Rift Valley residents will not make the mistake of voting for “selfish” leaders.
“We will not elect leaders who do not value us. Rift Valley residents should think about making Mr Mudavadi and others work with us for the benefit of all,” he said.
