Obama will not ignore Ruto despite ICC charges

21 July 2015, 13:37 William Korir

Nairobi - US President Barrack Obama will not ignore Deputy President William Ruto during his three day visit to the country, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said.

Obama will be in Kenya to open the 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit which takes place on the weekend of 25-26 July.

During his stay though, he will also hold bilateral talks with the government and there has been talk that he will snub Ruto, due to his continued association with the International Criminal Court ICC case in which he is accused of crimes against humanity.

" The US President will meet the government as it is and the Deputy President is a part of it and the President will meet him," he said.

" Other stories are simply sideshows and should be ignored as they are and rebuked," he added.

There have been reports from various media sources that the visit of the US President has only occurred because Uhuru's case at the ICC was dropped, something the President also sought to ignore.

" We want to concentrate on what matters which is that the visit will bring the US President to the country to deal with matters development and encourage our entrepreneurs," he added.

Obama is expected in the country Friday evening.
