URP rebel apologises, endorses Ruto as the Kalenjin kingpin

13 April 2016, 09:09 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Just a day after deputy President William Ruto's URP party gave a five-day ultimatum to all rebels, one of them has apologised.

Kuresoi south MP, Zakayo Cheruiyot who has been among Ruto's big critics, announced Tuesday that after the collapse of the ICC case against the DP, he now wants to return to his long time friend.

Cheruiyot said that Ruto has addressed his concerns and there was no reason for him not to support him.

"There were things I wanted the DP to sort out for my people and the things are being worked on and for that I don't see why I should keep being a rebel," said Cheruiyot.

"I want to restore my longtime friendship with the DP because I cannot afford to go against the undisputed king of my community," he added.

Cheruiyot added that he was among the founders and financiers of URP and considers the party as his own child.

"It's known that I was among the biggest financiers of URP and I was among the people who founded the party with Ruto and I cannot afford to abandon my child along the way," he said.

On Saturday, URP gave all rebel members five days to return to the party and apologise or be declared political outcasts in rift Valley.
