Gideon Moi Net Worth, Businesses And Properties He Owns In Kenya And Abroad

Baringo Senator Gideon Moi was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. The scion of late president Daniel arap Moi is a man of means. His demeanor, his friends and his favorite sport-Polo-betrays his breed. And wait until you hear him addressing a rally during a campaign trail or the many political shows we are accustomed to in Kenya. He talks with his nose. He eats words like Baringo Central-so that Baringo kati sounds like Baringo Kari. During the 2002 general election when he made his debut in active politics, Gideon Moi struggled to communicate with his constituents. Word in the Rift was that man Gidi couldn’t even communicate in his mother tongue. He went ahead to clinch the Baringo Central seat on a KANU ticket. And this brings us to his political life before we delve on the wealth he has amassed over the years.

Politics
For a man whose father ruled Kenya for 24 years-and with an iron fist-, it was only inevitable that the last born son of Kenya’s second president and his siblings would plunge into active politics. The politic novice easily won the Baringo Central seat as he was elected unopposed in 2002. The tide changed in 2007 when he was trounced by ODM candidate Sammy Mwaita. He ran for the Baringo county senatorial seat in 2013 and won. Gidi had made his intention clear and he has been a force to reckon with ever since. The 55 year old doubles as the Kenya African National Union (KANU), Kenya oldest political party, chairman.
