, NYERI, Kenya, May 27 – Gideon Moi on Saturday declared his 2022 presidential bid as having officially begun at a public rally where Maina Njenga launched his bid for the Laikipia senatorial seat on a KANU ticket.
Speaking in Laikipia town, the KANU party leader Moi said that the bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta is in motion even as he cautioned leaders in support of President Kenyatta’s reelection against infighting saying they should instead focus on mobilising voters for the August poll terming it as a difficult one.
Maina Njenga who is running on a KANU ticket has pledged to fight insecurity, water shortage and to foster peace and cooperation among the diverse communities living in the county.
KANU Secretary General Nick Salat has also pledged that the party will work to convince NASA strongholds to vote for Kenyatta come August.
Nominated Senator Naisula Lesuuda said that only Njenga could bring the diverse population in Laikipia County together. She downplayed Njengas past saying in essence, he who has no sin should cast the first stone.
The Laikipia senatorial seat hopeful condemned the recently concluded Jubilee primaries after having first been rejected by the party on integrity grounds.
Salat and Njenga also called the government to allow pastoralists graze in the government-owned ADC Mutara Ranch.
