Where was Ruto? DP absent during Obama arrival

25 July 2015, 10:50 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - As usual, Kenyans took the chance to have a go at Deputy President William Ruto for well, missing the arrival of US President Barrack Obama.

For the record, Ruto was at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre KICC where he was addressing budding youth on entrepreneurship matters together with CORD leader Raila Odinga.

But that was not the issue.

State House Nairobi had said prior to the arrival of President Obama that Ruto would accompany the President to the airport to welcome Obama, but he was nowhere to be seen.

Instead, he ended up at KICC, a point blogger Robert Alai was keen to stress.

" Uhuru was meeting Obama while Ruto was meeting Raila," he tweeted of the incident.

President Kenyatta had earlier stated that the fact that Ruto is still under the radar of the International Criminal Court will not be an issue for Obama and it waits to be seen if he will be there for the bilateral talks set for State House Saturday between President Obama and his team.

" He (Obama) is coming to meet the government of Kenya and the Deputy President is a part of it," he said last week over Ruto's state of play.

Whether that will work out, remains to be seen.
