Nicholas Biwott was the man at the epicenter of Daniel Moi's 24-year tenure as the President of Kenya. He was nicknamed as Total Man, Mr Fix it or simply king in waiting simply because of his firm stand in the Moi government.
Having been in politics for decades, Biwott knew what to say and what to do in politics. After he retired from active politics, Biwott still stayed relevant in Rift valley politics.
5 months before his demise, Biwott took center stage at Mark Too funeral and issued a stern warning to William Ruto not to pay attention to his junior leaders but instead he should listen to his boss President Uhuru.
“Avoid this ukora ndogo ndogo. You are up there, what do you want with the election of governors? Or MPs? Don’t pay any attention. As long as the President is here and the bishops are here to pray for us, what is the problem?” posed Biwott.
Biwott went ahead and reminded Ruto what his community expected from him and they[Kalenjin] will overwhelmingly support him like they did to Mzee Moi.
“DP you know what Kalenjins want. They want peace and leadership. And once they install someone, they fully support. The way they installed (president) Moi and supported him to the end, they will support you too,” Biwott concluded.
Ruto having declared his 2022 presidential ambitions of succeeding his boss, the late Biwott's prophecy might haunt his presidency after Ruto started listening to his junior leaders instead of his boss[Uhuru] later leading to fallout between. Ruto would later be sidelined in a government he once helped form.
