Ugandan President Yuweri Kaguta Museveni has been in the country for a three day visit since Wednesday, after landing in the Coastal city of Mombasa.On his last day of visit,the Ugandan leader visited former President Moi at his Kabarnet Gardens home in Nairobi County.
Even though the exact reason for President Museveni’s visit to the former head of state has remained scanty,it now emerges that it is a broader scheme of political power play and posturing for Baringo Senator Gideon Moi as he sets ground for an active engagement in 2022,most likely as a presidential candidate.
Gideon Moi,who was present at the meeting posted on his Facebook page that Ugandan President’s visit was a sign of a deep relationship between the two families which dates back to years.
“The visit is a sign of the deep relationship that they have built over the years and I am glad that it is still flourishing up to date,” said Senator Gideon Moi on his Facebook page.
Yuweri Museveni has been a major role in Kenyan politics and is viewed as one of the main influencers of how powerful a leader is in Kenyan politics.This visit comes after DP President visited President Museveni at Uganda State House and attended a fundraiser as well,at an invitation of the president.
Baringo Senator is at the forefront as one of the presidential hopefuls who have an ambition of giving the presidency a stab in 2022. He is seen as an erstwhile Ruto opponent,given that they both come from the same backyard,and allies of the DP say Senator Moi is spoiling for the DP.
