“They are both our sons but they have decided not to listen to us. We have sought appointments through their personal aides and even approached them in public forums but all these efforts have proved futile,” he said.
Leaders who support William Ruto blame those on Gideon Mois side as they try to ruin DPs ambition come 2022.
Mandago who is allied to William Ruto said that if the rebel MPs are genuine they should be raising issues in parliament that will help streamline the maize sector.

But some leaders disagreed with the elders, arguing that there is no point in bringing the two leaders together because they both have different political ideologies.
Mr. Seii replied by saying: “Our objective is the unity of all Kalenjins ahead of the 2022 general elections. It will guarantee better bargaining power even if one of our own does not succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.”
With William having declared his interests as president, his political rival Gideon Moi has shown his interest but has not declared to the public yet.
