Nick Salat, Secretary General of Kanu, has declared his support for President William Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza coalition. This comes after a tumultuous period where he was part of the Azimio coalition.
Mr Salat has declared his support for Dr Ruto and the government after previously being left out of the loop following the August General Election. He hopes that by lending his support, it will create a brighter future for everyone in the country.
Though he did not elaborate, his statement seemed to suggest that he had parted ways with Kanu Party, chaired by former Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
Mr Salat spoke at the Bomet Green stadium where Dr Ruto, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, and other leaders attended a Thanksgiving prayer rally. It was an uplifting event that brought hope and inspiration to all who attended.
The crowd erupted into cheers as Mr Salat proclaimed that, despite his previous support for Raila Odinga, he accepted the election results and officially recognized Dr Ruto as the fifth President of Kenya. Senate Majority Leader Aaron Cheruiyot had invited him to speak and the room was filled with appreciation and respect for Mr Salat’s remarks.
