Moi encounters hostile crowd in Aldai

All I can say is that Moi should have known better and laid "low like an envelope." He is now seeing things that he has never seen before in his life.

Moi turned up at a fundraising function in Aldai constituency only to be greeted by chants of “ODM! ODM!”

Tempers flared and the crowd got worked up when area MP Jimmy Choge ordered them not to vote for Raila Odinga in the Presidential race.

When Moi stood up to address them, he directed them to raise the one finger Kanu salute. But only a handful did so, while most of the crowd stubbornly kept their hands down. Still, Moi chastized the crowd, adding that they would "deeply regret supporting ODM blindly."

Former nominated MP Ezekiel Bargentuny criticized the crowd, accusing them of being hired to embarrass the former President.

Realizing that his hard stance was getting nowhere with the charged crowd, Moi then pleaded with them to vote for Kibaki so that the Kalenjin community could be included in the next government.
