Kanu Secretary-general Nick Salat has for the first time spoken out on the feud between his party's chairman Gideon Moi and Deputy President William Ruto.

Speaking to Daily Nation, Salat alleged that DP Ruto is responsible for the bad blood, having uttered some insults against the former first family.

The Kanu official conveyed that the Senator is ready for reconciliation if the condition is met.

"Our chairman, who is the Baringo Senator, is ready for any peace talks with DP Ruto but the elders who have shown that they would like to mediate between the duo must understand the genesis of the rift.

"DP Ruto should ask for forgiveness from the family of the former president because he is the one who has been saying unpalatable things about them," Salat advised.

Implications on 2022 Politics

Salat stated that the idea of settling scores is welcome, however, he clarified that it would not deter the red cock party from participating in the 2022 presidential race.

"As a party, we cannot accept mediation if our chair will be asked to step down for Mr Ruto. Kanu will provide alternative leadership because, as Rift Valley, we cannot put all our eggs in one basket," he explained.

Myoot Council of Elders Chairman Maj (rtd) John Seii told reporters that they have been attempting to reconcile the two leaders but their "high-handedness" has been a hindrance.

"Both are our sons but they have not listened to us . We have sought appointments through their personal aides and even approached them at public forums but in vain," he explained.
