Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has called on Baringo residents to support President Uhuru Kenyatta and his agenda.
Speaking during the burial of former Kanu Nominated councillor and long serving Maendeleo ya Wanawake chair Rhoda Teriki, Gideon said the Executive Order issued by the President this week heralded a new dispensation.
He said the relations between Uhuru and Opposition chief Raila Odinga had brought sanity and should be embraced by everyone.
He asked leaders from across Kenya to emulate the two in bid to unite the country.
“Let us encourage and support what the President is doing. It is time we embraced and aligned ourselves to his agenda,” said the senator.
He called on leaders to emulate the life of the late Teriki, who had mentored and empowered others.
Teriki was former Tinderet MP Henry Kosgey’s mother-in-law.
Being a Kanu member, he said the deceased stood her grounds and had no time to party-hop.
“The late was hardworking, we all relied on her. She led by example, was upright and courteous. Even to the party, she was strong and supportive. Let’s emulate her as leaders” he said.
Teriki, he said, was the cornerstone of her family. He urged other leaders to mentor others and guide them towards making a positive impact.
“Let’s fight towards improving the lives of Kenyans and avoid being self-centered. Leaders should be mindful of the people and not just positions,” he said. Such, he said, will never go unnoticed.
Gideon said he will soon hold a meeting with residents of Baringo to explain to them the significance of the new order in government.
At the funeral were Water Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui and Emgwen legislator Alex Kosgey.
