Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has accused Baringo Senator Gideon Moi for playing politics to visitations to his father, former President Daniel Arap Moi.
The Elgeiyo Marakwet Senator said that since the time Mzee Moi was discharged from hospital, Rift Valley leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto have tried to visit him but Gideon Moi has always blocked their intention by denying them appointments.
“As chairman of the Rift valley leader’s political caucus, I want to lay everything in black and white. We have tried our level best to go visit Our beloved former President Daniel Arap Moi and wish him all the best but Gideon Moi has blocked our every intention so that people would say that Willliam does not want to wish well mzee Moi which is a total lie that must be said”. Senator Murkomen said.
He was speaking at Kapkatet in Kericho County when he accompanied DP Ruto to the homecoming party for Bureti MP Japhet Kiptergech Mutai.
Last week, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga visited the ailing Mzee Moi at his Kabarak home, a visitation that sparked fresh debate on 2022 presidential election.
Do you agree that Gideon is playing politics as claimed by Murkomen?
