Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto was missing from the government's detail in the visit of US Secretary of State John Kerry.
There was no official word on where the Deputy President was as the US Secretary held talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta Monday in Nairobi.
Ruto had been in the capital city Sunday where he even attended a church service in Kasarani, the same day Kerry arrived.
Kerry was welcomed on arrival by Foreign affairs CS Amina Mohammed.
Ruto though, came up as a topic of discussion Monday during a Kerry press conference, after his remarks on gay people and their rights in Kenya came up as a question.
" I know that the US stand is that every person should be treated equally," Kerry remarked when asked about Ruto's assertion Sunday that gay people had no place in Kenya.
Kerry though, did not directly mention Ruto, as he stated that he had not been able to see the full remarks by the DP.
The DP, stated that gays are not allowed either by law nor by religious beliefs to exist in Kenya.
