Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has called on politicians to campaign peacefully and educate Kenyans on the need to vote in the coming general election.

The Kanu chairman urged politicians to avoid divisive politics.

He was speaking at Emining in Baringo County, where he attended a service at the Africa Inland Church.

"Let us come together and do our politics in peace and avoid dividing Kenyans for our own personal interest," Moi said, as quoted by Standard.

He was accompanied by Baringo Woman Representative aspirant Gladwell Cheruiyot and Mogotio MP aspirant Noah Chepkech, at a rally in Emining, called on aspirants to avoid mudslinging others.

"We are having individuals who are now perfecting the art of propaganda, hoping to gain political mileage. They have been going around saying that I am against the operation and you know them. Leadership cannot be about lies. Let them learn that when you want something, you don't follow deceitful ways but be yourself and tell people what you want and have for them," he said.

He urged area residents not to be fooled and told them to be careful in choosing their leaders.

The senator said he was saddened that some aspirants were spreading rumours and propaganda about the ongoing security operation in Baringo aimed at flushing out bandits.
