Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has been finally been coronated by Talai elders in Nandi as a Kalenjin elder.
Reports indicate that the dawn ceremony took at least three hours.
Gideon’s installation was done by elders led by Christopher Koyogi.
Koyogi declared that Gideon was now the Kalenjin community leader and he was given similar powers as those given to his father more than 63 years ago.
Barely a month ago, Gideon was blocked by rowdy youth on his way to meet Talai elders in Nandi.
According to reports by the Star, a section of the elders had invited Moi to Kapsisiywa for blessings, days after the elders blessed DP William Ruto as the Kalenjin spokesman and leader.
The incident happened at around 4am along Sangalo-Kabiyet route where the youth had blocked the road, claiming that the community blessings had already been given to Deputy President William Ruto.
However, Koyogi had vowed that the ceremony would go on after it was blocked by youth.
