A section of Jubilee MCAs from Baringo county have accused both Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and Tiaty MP William Kamket of allegedly sacking a university lecturer aligned to Jubilee party.
This was after abrupt termination of a contract to Rev Symon Kiuta who worked as both chaplain and lecturer at Kabarak University.
The leaders led by Eunice Kakerel, Jubilee party nominated member from Tiaty termed the termination as politically instigated stating that they don’t understand the reasons behind the decisions which led to Kiuta losing his noble job.
“We suspect that Tiaty MP William Kamket and Gideon Moi are behind his sacking since the ‘victim’ (Rev Kiuta) is a Jubilee diehard known to support Dp William Ruto”, observed Kakerel.
Rev Kiuta hails from Tiaty and had been working for more than 20 years in the said institution since he was employed by retired president Daniel Arap Moi without bothering the political party which he (Kiuta) supported.
He is known to have tried to outshine Kamket when he competed against him in 2017 parliamentary race but lost the battle.
“If Kamket is innocent about Kiuta’s fate, then why is he silent all through”, Kakerel added saying that they as Pokot community respects retired president Moi but what the current KANU leaders are doing was not fair.
Kamket is Gidon Moi’s key point man in Baringo and has been so vocal against Gideon’s critics especially the Deputy President William Ruto.
The allegations come just a few days after Baringo senator Gideon Moi told the residents to freely go to Kabarak home and greet retired president Moi if they want.
Speaking on Friday at Sacho high school while commissioning school dormitories, senator Moi assured Baringo residents that they were free to pay a visit to Baba Moi any day and any time.
He was responding to a questioned posed to him by one of the residents who was inquiring about Mzee Moi’s health.
“Chomegee kugoee”, (the old man is fairing on well) Senator Moi alias Kipsielei said in Kalenjin dialect. ” Even you residents you need to find time to come and see him”, he added.
