The Rift Valley MPs will now negotiate with Kibaki. They want the president to give them the Vice Presidency in the new government and in turn they will support Kibaki ensuring that the Rift Valley votes for him in unison. – API*APN


By Standard ReporterMore than 20 Rift Valley Province MPs meet today in what organisers say are efforts to forge unity. Keiyo South MP, Mr Nicholas Biwott, and Agriculture minister, Mr Kipruto arap Kirwa, have convened the talks at the ASK showground in Eldoret. Also expected are representatives from 42 Kanu branches and elders. The meeting is a follow up on one held in Naivasha last week and attended by 17 MPs.

A fortnight ago, former President Moi, who has since declared support for President Kibakis re-election bid, attended similar talks in Eldoret.

Other leaders allied to Eldoret North MP, Mr William Ruto, met elders and declared that the region would be backing ODM, whose presidential candidate is Langata MP, Mr Raila Odinga.
