Tuesday November 20, 2018-A section of religious leaders from Rift Valley have asked politicians to ‘leave retired President Daniel Moi and his family alone’.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, the leaders led by Rev Joel Chebii said it was regrettable that politicians have been misusing Moi’s name to gain political mileage.
“Wenye wako uongozini na wanatafuta tafadhali muwache jina ya former president Moi. Wacha mzee apumzike maana alifanya kazi yake ambaye sisi tunashukuru,” he said.
(Those in leadership or those seeking posts please leave out the name of former President Moi. Let him rest because he already did his work which we appreciate).
On Monday , Kapseret MP , Oscar Sudi ,who is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto accused Moi’s family of financing MPs to mudsling the DP’s name using Maize scandal.
But Chebii dismissed the claims, saying the retired President had done his part in developing the country.
“Politics should not go there as Mzee is not fighting for any seat. He did his part,” Chebii said, citing church and school projects Moi oversaw.
