Baringo Senator Gideon Moi on Sunday held a five-hour consultative meeting with a section of Rift Valley leaders at his Kabarak home.
The leaders allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s political wing included Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos, MPs Joshua Kutuny(Cherangany), Kassait Kamket(Tiaty), Silas Tiren(Moiben) and Former Cabinet Minister Musa Sirma.
According to a statement to newsrooms, the leaders discussed issues affecting Rift Valley region including the coronavirus pandemic.
“The leaders discussed the impact of Covid-19 to the residents and how to help the people overcome the pandemic that is threatening the livelihoods and measures to be undertaken to alleviate the suffering of victims of floods that has affected parts of Rift Valley,” read the statement.
The meeting comes a few weeks after the KANU-Jubilee post election agreement which paved way for changes in Senate House leadership.
The agreement saw KANU’s Samuel Poghisio(West Pokot) replace Kipchumba Murkomen(Elgeyo Marakwet), a close ally of DP Ruto.
There are also rumours that either Kamket or Kutuny will take over the position of National Assembly Majority Whip in a looming purge.
The supremacy battle between Senator Moi and Deputy President William Ruto heightened following the merger with Moi now seen to be closely working on a succession plan with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The battle for numbers at the Senate was seen as an equal split in Jubilee-KANU(Rift Valley) between the duo.
Senators; Moi, Poghisio, Prof. Margaret Kamar, Samson Cherargei, Alice Milgo and Michael Mbito are Pro-Uhuru and supported the ouster of Murkomen.
Pro-Ruto allies who were against the ouster are Murkomen,Susan Kihika, Aaron Cheruiyot, Dr. Christopher Langat, Ltumbesi Lelegwe and Victor Prengei.
