Start Of The End? The Moi Era Swept Out Of The Political Scene As UDA's Chebor Wins Rongai MP Seat

As residents of Rongai constituency headed to the polls on Monday, there was only one shot left for the Moi family - that Raymond Moi should at least retain his seat. His brother, former Baringo senator lost his seat to UDA's William Cheptumo.

Incumbent Member of National Assembly and the late President Daniel Moi's eldest son was on the ballot to sway the votes to retain his seat.

However, the waves seems to have changed completely as UDA's Paul Chebor clinched the seat having garnered 27021 votes against Raymond Moi, who had 14715 votes.

As direct rivalry ties between President Elect William Ruto and the Moi family start to crop up, there is a possibility that the seat may now remain under UDA for a longer time.

In the photo above, Gideon allegedly refused to shake hands with Ruto when he visited Mzee Moo before his death.

However, it is not over until the Moi's call it over. Consider that Gideon Moi eyes the presidency, we will have to wait to see whether the soft - spoken Moi will ever ascend to the seat his father clinched for close to three decades.
