The suspended Kanu secretary general Nick Salat ditched Raila Odinga's Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp to President William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance team yesterday during a thanksgiving service held at Green Stadium in Bomet County.
Salat was among few leaders from the Rift Valley region, and who were against Ruto's presidential bid, but in his remarks yesterday, Salat termed himself as a prodigal son, urging the president to welcome him back.
This has elicited mixed reactions across the political space, with some leaders saying that the Kanu party is headed for political oblivion same to the Azimio camp, with others alleging that Salat is only pursuing his political ambitions after being in the cold for 15 years owing to his defeat in the Bomet East Parliamentary race.
However, in his interview with NTV on Monday, Political and Governance Consultant Charles Munyui said that Salat was a lucky leader if the president can welcome him despite the jabs be was throwing to him during the campaigns.
Munyui went on to say that from the Salat's story, Kenyans should never take politicians serious since most if not all, will be going anywhere they think they are comfortable.
"All this is interesting and I think he is a very luck guy. We might never get to know what happened for Gideon Moi to kick him out. But he said he is home, which is a very heavy statement, meaning he is okay and working with the president of Kenya. With the all dally-dallying during the campaigns and post elections you have an opportunity to be received by the president must be a good feeling for him."
"However Kenyans must now stop taking politicians too seriously ultimately it is about them, I think it is okay for him to join Ruto's side rather than being in a side that lost the elections."
