The Nandi Kaburwo council of elders have endorsed the Deputy President William Ruto’s blessing ritual conducted last week by the Talai council of elders in Kapsisiywa village in Nandi County. Led by the council spokesperson Mr Charles Tanui, the elders said they are in agreement with the whole process and that DP Ruto is now the endorsed Kalenjin community leader in Rift Valley and no one else should take the mantle.

Speaking to West FM in Kapsabet, the council said the Deputy President was blessed and was handed the tools of leadership by the Talai clan which is the family of Koitalel Arap Samoei, “The blessings from Koitalel’s family came at the right moment and we allowed the DP to do so in order to accomplish his political endeavor,” they said.
