In his bid to entrench himself as the defacto leader of the Kalenjin community, a position Kalenjin elected leaders claim belongs to Deputy President William Ruto, Moi has been traversing the country meeting various groups as he also seeks to strengthen his bid for the presidency in 2022. Just recently, he met religious leaders from the African Independent Pentecostal Churches of Africa and others drawn from Akorino Church for consultative meetings.
