, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 26 – President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday visited Deputy William Ruto at the Harambee Annex office in Nairobi for talks.
President Kenyatta is said to have casually walked there after an event at KICC.
Even though details of their discussions remained scanty, State House later released photos of the two inside and outside the DP’s office.
They were seen in a jovial mood as the entered the office and at one point removed their jackets as they sat in the DP’ office.
In another photo, the two were seen at a table with among others, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.
Contacted for comment, the DPs communication Secretary David Mugonyi said: “The workings between the Deputy President and his boss, the President of the Republic of Kenya are not available to me. All I can say is that when the President visited they went into a working lunch.”
The meeting is seen as a move to bolster confidence among Jubilee Party supporters amid growing concerns of a fall-out over 2022 succession politics.
DP Ruto is already facing calls to resign even as the Opposition leaders led by Senator James Orengo plot for his impeachment, accusing him of rubbishing the war against corruption.[cresta-social-share]
