The embattled Kabarak University lecturer/Chaplain, Simon Kiuta who was recently sacked from the institution has opened up on what led to his sacking.
Kiuta revealed that he was fired following directives from KANU party chairperson Gideon Moi who also acts as the Varsity’s pro-chancellor, due to his political stands.
Known to be DP William Ruto supporter, Kiuta competed against William Kamket for Tiaty parliamentary seat on Jubilee Ticket in 2017 general election, unfortunately, lost the battle but resumed back to his normal task as both chaplain and lecturer at the Nakuru based institution.
Speaking on Sunday with the company of West Pokot County Governor Prof Lonyangapuo at a Karenger School the home village of the governor, Kiutta revealed that some leaders had already ganged up to plan for his ousting.
According to him, his support for Deputy President William Ruto had contributed to his sacking.
“I usually attend several church functions and fun drives in Tiaty where people clearly know me to be Jubilee and DP Ruto supporter, so some people have been recording my speeches then send audios to Kamket who then forwards them to Senator Moi, then to Varsity’s vice-chancellor”, Kiuta told a local publication.
He wondered why he was told to pack and go without clear and genuine reasons claiming he didn’t commit any crime.
“I was given the letter and told to either choose to go home and freely campaign for DP William Ruto or keep quiet and work in Kabarak. Gideon Moi himself ordered”, Added Rev Kiuta.
He added, he is now ready to tackle the reigning Tiaty MP William Kamket in the next general elections.
“I have decided to leave peacefully, to give room for senator Gideon Moi do his own things. God knows everything”, concluded rev Kiuta.
His sacking has already elicited mixed reactions from the county with a section of Baringo county assembly MCAs rebuking the move, terming it politically instigated.
