Nick Salat Comes to a Conclusion After Seeing What Happened to Ruto in Raila's Stronghold

Embattled KANU Secretary General Nick Salat has now predicted that President William Ruto will remain at the helm until 2032.

Ruto, though yet to declare interest in a second term in the 2027 polls, is expected to try to extend his stay in State House like his two predecessors who have served under the current constitution.

Salat, who joined Ruto on Sunday, said that this will happen, promising to help Ruto achieve it in the event he is interested in another five years in office.

Speaking at the Bomet Green Stadium on Sunday, he added that after watching the recent happenings in the country, he is convinced that Ruto is invincible.

He cited his reception in Luo Nyanza, a region that was initially considered completely anti-Ruto, terming the U-turn an indication that Ruto is on the right path.

"I know you will be President for 10 years. I saw the great reception that you were accorded in Nyanza and I cannot be left behind. Wherever you are, I will be. I have suffered too long, please accept me back," he said as is quoted by the People Daily.

He made the remarks in the presence of Ruto and Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, both of whom welcomed him into the Kenya Kwanza fold.

Also present was Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who said that having worked with Salat in KANU years back, he can confirm that he is a good man, who was, however, used and dumped by KANU Chairman and former Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.

"I was with Nick in KANU where we worked on the Uhuru project. You are a good leader who was used and dumped but in Ruto's house, there is space for everyone," the DP said.
