The de­fec­tion of West Pokot Gover­nor Si­mon Kachapin from Kanu to Ju­bilee has set the stage for a bat­tle be­tween him and Se­na­tor John Lonyan­ga­puo next year. Lonyan­ga­puo plans to run for gover­nor and has al­ready started cam­paign­ing. Lonyan­ga­puo’s grip on Kanu and his close ties with his son Baringo Se­na­tor Gideon Moi caused Kachapin to jump ship. Sources said he feared he would lose the nom­i­na­tion to Gideon.
