Postponing Men’s Conference will not change anything’ says Kibor, promises to go on with the Conference as planned
February 6, 2020
Controversial Eldoret businessman Jackson Kibor has announced that the men’s conference 2020 will go on as planned in spite of President Moi’s death.
The businessman told a local television crew that postponing the men’s conference would not change anything since Moi was gone. The conference must go on. The television crew had visited Mzee Kibor at his home in Uasin Gishu.
The event is scheduled for mid-February 2020.
The businessman whose speech at last year’s men’s conference went viral on social media also cautioned young men against growing long beards, saying that beards made them look old.
Earlier on, Kibor had eulogized President Moi as a great leader. Kibor was a Wareng County Council Chairman and an ally of the late Moi.
When he questioned the succession plan of the party, he was kicked out of KANU and shifted alliances. Kibor has now been a Raila ally for many years.
Kibor made headlines when he divorced his long term wife, citing denial of conjugal rights, and married a young woman – young enough to be his granddaughter.
Even though Jackson Kibor had differences of opinion with Moi, he says that they remained friends.
President Moi is set to be buried in Kabarak next week on Wednesday. A public funeral is planned for Kasarani on Tuesday. There may also be a public viewing of the body at Parliament Buildings.
Kibor gained notoriety when he divorced two of his elder wives – whom he married in the 60s – to remain with the young Eunita Kibor. He is also known for his daredevil behaviour, including hacking off a clamp on his vehicle, when it was clamped by Uasin Gishu County askaris.
Even though the men’s conference will go on as planned, other events, such as the BBI Steering forums and meetings, Tanga Tanga rally, have been postponed in favor of mourning the late President.
