  • Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot has revealed that he was suspended from Moi University by a man who now serves with him in the same house.

    While speaking to KTN's Duncan Khaemba, the fiery legislator explained that Bomet Senator Christopher Lang'at sat in the panel that kicked him out of the institution for leading a protest. 

    At the time, Lang'at was an acting head of department in the School of Communication.

    "Among the people who sat in the panel that made this decision is my current governor in the county of Kericho Prof. Paul Chepkwony and Senator for Bomet Christopher Lang'at who was my lecturer," he narrated.

    Interestingly, when Lang'at was elected to the Senate, it is Cheruiyot who welcomed him.

    "When we had elections in 2017, he was elected as the Senator of Bomet, so I had the distinct honour inviting him to Parliament and showing him around having gotten here ahead of him," he remarked.

    On his part, Lang'at explained that the university's governing council had to suspend Cheruiyot because he was becoming so risky.

    "It reached a time when he was not comfortable with the day-to-day activities of the university, he could call a meeting and make the students abandon their classes," he stated.

    He went on to explain that he was taken aback when they first met in Parliament, adding that he could not believe that he could now sit with someone he had participated in sending home.
