For the entire period he served as President, retired President Daniel Moi struggled to stamp his authority in Gusii region, which was vital both in 1992 and 1997 polls.

Moi enjoyed support from his long time allies Zachary Onyonka, Lawrence Sagini, Simeon Nyachae, Sam Ongeri, Anasi Onyancha, Zephania Anyieni among others.

But another group of politicians gave him hectic tikes in Gusii, some even taking the tough war to parliament where they made it difficult for goverment.

Former Kitutu Masaba MP Anyona Moseti was perhaps his greatest critic. The Makerere and Alliance High School educated Anyona was first elected in 1974.

Mr Moseti, who lost his seat in 1977 upon detention by Jomo Kenyatta, played a major role in 80s, often getting arrested and spending days in detention.

In 1992, he was re-elected, taking the fight to parliament. At one point, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga termed him his heir apparent given his tough stand.

For Enock Magara, an advocate and MP from South Mugirango, Daniel Moi was a dictator. The firebrand MP died in a suspicious road accident in 2001, paving way to his brother Omingo Magara.

Another Kitutu Masaba MP Abuya Abuya remains one of the fiercest critic of Moi. The then Attorney General Charles Njonjo named him among 'Seven bearded sisters'.

The group involved youthful MPs like James Orengo, Lawrence Sifuna among others. They made legislation functions in parliament difficult for Moi.

Mr Henry Obwocha, who served as West Mugirango MP for 15 years and Planning minister also was part of the team that antagonised Mr Moi. He died in 2018.

The list will not be complete without James Nyamweya, a former Moi's ally cum critic. He served as MP in Nyaribari constituency. He was a close friend of Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.
