KANU Gives Ultimatum to William Ruto Ahead of Reconciliatory Talks


Efforts by the Kalenjin Council of Elders to reconcile Deputy President William Ruto with Kanu Chairman Gideon Moi might be thrown into disarray after Kanu Secretary-General Nick Salat asked the DP to apologise to the Moi family.

 Mr Salat said Kanu was ready for any reconciliatory moves to enable the two Rift Valley leaders to work together in the run-up to the 2022 elections.

“Our chairman, who is the Baringo Senator, is ready for any peace talks with DP Ruto but the elders who have shown that they would like to mediate between the duo must understand the genesis of the rift. DP Ruto should ask for forgiveness from the family of the former president because he is the one who has been saying unpalatable things about them,” Mr Salat said.

The elders recently warned that the community risked failing to clinch the presidency in 2022 due to the supremacy battle between Mr Ruto and the Baringo Senator.

Myoot Council of Elders Chairman Maj (rtd) John Seii complained that their efforts to reconcile the two leaders have proved futile due to their “high-handedness”.

He said they have not been able to meet either of them.

“Both are our sons but have not listened to us. We have sought appointments through their personal aides and even approached them at public forums but in vain,” he lamented.
