Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka and other leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto were today denied access to retired president Daniel Arap Moi.
Lusaka was accompanied by Baringo Governor Stanley Kiptis, Kakamega counterpart Wycliffe Oparanya, senators Susan Kihika (Nakuru) and James Orengo(Siaya).
They were visiting Moi’s Kabarak home to condole with the family following death of Jonathan; Mzee’s first born son.
A source has hinted to Nairobi Journal that the leaders were denied access because they are close to Deputy President were blocked by Baringo senator Gideon Moi.
“It all started when governor Kiptis joined the delegation on the way, he was told to alight from Lusaka’s car on the way to Kabarak but he refused” said the source.
Claiming “Gideon had agreed that Lusaka will meet Mzee but he changed the tune when he learnt that he was in company of leaders allied to Ruto”
This week, Ruto avoided Moi’s Kabarak home and visited Jonathan’s home in move that was applauded as being close to the deceased family and not show-off of visiting Mzee Moi for ‘Photo-session”.
