Nick Salat’s Mother: The Woman Who Sold Everything, Legitimately, To Feed Her 10 Kids

Elizabeth Chepkoech was a hardworking woman, an industrious businesswoman who did everything possible to provide for her ten kids, after her spouse’s death in 1987.

The late Chepkoech is the biological mother of KANU Secretary-General Nick Salat.

She was buried on Tuesday, December 28 at her Siwot Village home in Bomet East Sub-County in Bomet County. Her deceased spouse, Isaac Salat, was an ex lawmaker in 1970s.

Worked as a teacher, Chepkoech also took various business like agriculture, hospitality and transport sectors.

“Mama Elizabeth was a go-getter,” her eulogy read.

“She took part in farming; maize and coffee; transport, etc. If there was a business opportunity, she always tried her hand out.

“She purchased a vehicle that would travel to Chepalungu to purchase sacks of maize and take them to Nakuru cereals. She ferried the coffee to Kisii before being sold to coffee board.

By the time Chekpoech’s husband lost his life in 1987, her kids, Nick Salat and Madge Salat, were ongoing with their undergraduate degrees in Canada.

Another kid, Stone Salat, stayed in India and Edwin, the fifth born, was ongoing with his education at Kenyan college.

Chepkoech now took the full responsibility of fatherhood and motherhood to make sure the kids got their education.

Her final send-off on Tuesday was thronged by, KANU chairperson Gideon Moi, and Nominated MP Wilson Sossion.
