On top of the offer, an insider says, was a cabinet slot which DP Ruto believes will empower the former Bomet governor to take charge of his campaigns at Rift Valley.

"The DP convinced President Uhuru Kenyatta that Isaac will re-energise his grip in Rift Valley and that's why Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich is on his way out.

"And as such, the impending appointment of Isaac Ruto to cabinet will enable the DP to tackle rebels along with Gideon Moi because he understands them better," said the aide, who spoke in confidence.

On Sunday, Ruto returned to Bomet and was received by Governor Joyce Laboso and Mr Isaac Ruto along with a battalion of South Rift politicians.

To bring them to speed on his decision to fight for Isaac Ruto's appointment to cabinet, the DP is expected to meet the entire South Rift leadership after fundraiser at AGC Siongiroi in Bomet.

Both Gideon Moi and rebel Jubilee MPs Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills), Silas Tiren (Moiben) and Joshua Kutuny (Cherangany) are close to Isaac Ruto since they opposed the DP at one point.

Governors Jackson Mandago (Uasin Gishu), John Longanyapuo (West Pokot) and Prof Paul Chepkwony of Kericho last month visited Mr Isaac Ruto where they briefed him about the latest development.

In return, Isaac Ruto has reportedly surrendered CCM party to DP William Ruto for revamping and it will be used as alternative should Jubilee mandarins sabotage Ruto's quest for State House.

"What I know there is a lot going on. It will be premature if I preempt. Let's just wait for a few days. Of course you know how the DP works," said Patrick Osero, a close ally of Ruto when asked about CCM being taken over by William Ruto.

The appointment to cabinet is expected to take place before Christmas and President Uhuru Kenyatta has lately scolded ministers who he believes are letting him down.
