Addressing press after meeting kipsigis clan council of elders and other organization today in Bomet town, he said Chama Cha Mashinani is now fully in the coalition after getting endorsement from the elders.
In a short tweet he posted today to confirm this he said he is officially joining NASA today.
I, today, have officially joined NASA.

Governor Isaac Ruto had earlier this year indicated he was not willing to join NASA. This change of heart comes at a time of complications in NASA lineup.
A recent opinion poll released April 2017 by Infotrak research indicates that the race for governorship in Bomet County is very closely contested and might go either way between governor Isaac Ruto and his close rival Joyce Laboso. The poll shows governor Ruto leading Laboso with only 1% . Isaack Ruto has 38.9% support while Joyce Laboso has 37.7%. Dr. Julius Kones has 7.3% while 16% is still undecided.
While in another poll his party CCM enjoys 30% while Jubilee 40% with undecided taking up the rest.
The governors supporters are happy with the move, here is the support they have given him
@IsaacRutoGov Karibu Bwana Governor. You have joined the winning team. We are even better with you on board.
