Gideon Moi (born 22 October 1963) is a Kenyan politician who has served in the Senate of Kenya, representing Baringo County, since 2013. He was elected with a landslide win of over 80%, trouncing his opponent Jackson Kosgei. He is also the Chairman of the Kenya African National Union (KANU), which for decades was the ruling party in Kenya. He is the youngest son of Kenya's second president, Daniel arap Moi, and Lena Moi.

Personal life[edit]

He is married to Zahra and has three children Kimoi, Kigen and Lulu. Gideon Moi has played Polo for Gilgil-based Manyatta club.[1]

Controversy[edit]

In August 2007, The Guardian reported that the Kroll report, commissioned in 2004 by President Mwai Kibaki to trace assets of people who were suspected of looting the state, listed Gideon Moi. It reported that Gideon was worth USD 550 million.[2]
