JUMPING SHIP OVER TICKET?
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.
