Shock as Sugoi elders dump their own son, RUTO, and endorse GIDEON MOI for President in 2022-What did the DP do to deserve all this?

Monday May 20, 2019-Baringo Senator Gideon Moi's bid for presidency has received a major boost after elders in Uasin Gishu County endorsed him.

In a function that was held at Sugoi on Saturday, the rural home of Deputy President William Ruto, the elders vowed to rally behind Moi and pledged to campaign for him in his bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.

Ernest Kirui, a member of Kalenjin Myoot Council of Elders, lauded the Senator for his humility amid heated political discussions, adding he had demonstrated great leadership qualities.

“Don’t worry about those who are already insulting you even before the campaign period begins. We as elders know who the right leaders are, and we will make it known when the right time comes,” Kirui said.

The elders also took the opportunity to console Gideon Moi following the death of his elder brother, Jonathan Moi, in April.

“Your father led a united and peaceful country. We are here to ask you to take our sympathies and condolences to Mzee Moi following the passing on of Jonathan, but we must also speak about your intentions to occupy the top seat. We will walk hand in hand with you in that journey,” said Peter Lugano, a retired Chief from Likuyani Constituency.

Moi's endorsement by elders from Uasi Gishu, Ruto's home county, is a major blow to DP who has also declared interest in the race to State House.
