I support all avenues for peace in North Rift, says Baringo Senator Gideon Moi

By Leonard Kulei | April 26th 2015

Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has challenged North Rift residents and leaders to seek alternative mechanisms to end insecurity.

Gideon, who has been in the forefront in searching for lasting solutions to the menace, told residents of Liboi in Baringo County that he was ready to be part of the leaders who would champion peace in the county.

“I am ready to work with those who are looking for peace. Let us unite as leaders and resolve this challenge,” he said.

He said he strongly supports other leaders in their long quest for elusive peace. The senator spoke yesterday during the burial of Baringo Member of the County Assembly (MCA) Kiprono Changole.

Gideon mourned the late Changole as a personal friend and a dedicated KANU member who lived up to the ideals of the Independence party.

“Changole was such a loyal party member. To me, he was a personal friend and a man who worked hard to see Kanu realise its dreams,” he said.

The senator also availed condolences of former President Daniel Moi. Changole is the son of paramount chief Cheptoo Changole who was a close friend of the former head of state.

Leaders at the funeral engaged in a heated debate over who should be blamed for the rising insecurity caused by rampant incidents of cattle rustling. A section of local leaders accused the government of neglecting residents who have been killed and thousands of their livestock stolen by bandits.

Kanu secretary General Nick Salat said the party is back on track and they are doing all they can to strengthen it. “We have no problem with any leader in this country. We are doing our own things and we have never undermined anyone,” said Salat.

He described Changole as a dedicated fighter who stopped at nothing to achieve what he believed in.  Other leaders at the funeral were Baringo Governor Ben Cheboi, Baringo South MP Grace Kipchoin and former Kanu MP Mark Too.
