In Summary
  • Mr Kapchok said he made the about-turn “because the governor and the devolved government I have been fighting are now on the right track”.

West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo and his critic Dennis Ruto Kapchok “Mulmulwas” have reconciled.

Mr Kapchok promised to tone down his criticism of the governor after being persuaded to do so by his father William Lopetakou, elders and kin.

PEACE DEAL

The others who brokered the peace deal were former Kacheliba MP Peter Nang'ole, nominated Ward Representative and Mr Kapchok’s aunt Josephine Cheprum, and retired chief Zacharia Loripo, his uncle.

Mr Kapchok said he made the about-turn “because the governor and the devolved government I have been fighting are now on the right track”.

Last year, Mr Kapchok launched the Mulmulwas Movement in Kapenguria. He became famous when Prof Lonyangapuo called him “Mulmulwas”, meaning a round object.

The video of the governor castigating Mr Kapchok went viral.

Local musicians even composed songs in praise of “Mulmulwas”.
