Looters of public funds must face the full force of the law, Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has said. 

Moi said the government is always committed to allocating money to projects to improve the livelihoods of mwananchi, but cash ends up in the hands of corrupt individuals.

"All those having evil plans of stealing taxpayers' money should know their days are numbered. They will have to face the full force of the law," he said. 

He spoke during a service at St Mary's Mother of God Church in Kabarnet town, Baringo Central on Sunday.

In attendance were county commissioner Henry Wafula, Kabarnet MCA Ernest Kibet and scores of faithful. 

Senator Moi promised he will work with the stakeholders to ensure the works at the stalled Kirandich Dam Phase Two and Kabarnet sewerage system is reembarked on and completed. 

Moi avoided 2022 election politics, instead uttering his common slogan 'toko tai' (it's still ahead).

The senator who has been accused of missing from the county said he is now back.

"From now on my people expect to see me around severally than ever before," he said. 

He urged residents to follow strictly the Covid-19 rules, noting the reemergence of the fourth wave of the pandemic.

"People should worry about the killer disease, observe the protocols, maintain social distance and wear masks to avoid contracting the scourge," he said. 

The senator had earlier indicated his ambition to battle Deputy President William Ruto in the race to take over power from Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
