“I read in the papers that they are dissolving to join JAP and I support the dissolution not because I want to join JAP but because I want my people to come back home to KANU,” said Moi.
He added: “There is no way people will stay in a party that has lot ground support and goodwill of the people and even if they dissolve it will not have nay political impact in rift valley,’.
He reiterated that his party will not join JAP and called on them to stop wasting time selling the new outfit in rift valley because it will not be bought.
“Kalenjins will not be fooled again and no one will force them to join a party that is not theirs,” he said.
