Cherargei had earlier on Friday accompanied DP Ruto to meet Nandi elders.

The DP and his team which also included Nandi governor Stephen Sang met the Talai elders as from 4 am on Friday.

The Talai elders performed sacrifices and cleansed  Ruto to protect him from harm and political miseries.

The two-hour elaborate ceremony was organised by the Nandi Laibons Council of Elders and was conducted in Kipsirwo village from 5 am to 7 am.

It was meant to protect the DP from bad omens.

Ruto was then handed leadership instruments, including a baton (nogirwet) and a traditional stick (Siarit) said to have been used by legendary Nandi chief medicine man Orgoiyot-Kipnyolei arap Turgat.

They had gathered at the home of retired Anglican priest Canon James Baasi. Elders from the larger Talai clan were selected to preside over the event.
