A section of ODM leaders have strongly hinted at a Raila Odinga-Gideon Moi presidential ticket.
The same was flouted when the Moi scion visited Homabay County yesterday.
Area Senator Moses Kajwang’ dropped the bombshell when he said President Uhuru Kenyatta should hand over to leaders who have invested in values and not raw accumulation of wealth.
“When we talk about Raila or Gideon taking over power it is not about dynasties but capability. Gideon is so humble it is hard to imagine he is son to a former President. He has won many hearts,” said Kajwang’.
“I pray that he (Uhuru) hands over power to Raila and Gideon,” he added, amid applause at Wikondiek SDA Church in Karachuonyo, where Gideon presided over a fund-raiser.
The Kanu national chairman faulted those issuing ultimatums ahead of the proposed constitutional referendum.
“We have agreed that there should be a referendum and there should be no conditions tied to this,” he said.
Gideon also supported the political pact created by the handshake between President Kenyatta and Raila.
“The handshake between President Kenyatta and Raila has brought unity and cohesiveness. I want to congratulate them for standing firm on the handshake,” said Gideon.
He said the political peace currently prevailing in the country was good for development.
“The fruits of the handshake have been seen. It is part of why I am here today. It has given leaders the freedom to travel to every part of the country without fear,” he added.
He was accompanied by Moiben MP Silas Teren, Homa Bay Deputy Governor Hamilton Orata, Woman Rep, Gladys Wanga, Karachuonyo MP Adipo Okuome, several MCAs, Kisii University Vice Chancellor Prof John Akama and former Kasipul MP Otieno Kopiyo. Mr Moi will today preside over a funds-drive for women traders in Homa Bay.
