In a bid to revamp his bid to become Kenya’s fifth president, deputy president William Ruto on Thursday met leaders drawn from various areas of the country.
Ruto met elders from Rift Valley, led by Mzee Gilbert Kabage, Joel Koech, and Joseph Nyakundi at Karen residence, Nairobi.
As if that was not enough, In another meeting at the same venue, the embattled leader met religious leaders over what pundits believe to be seeking support through the church.
“Religion provides social cohesion, instills morals in society, and advocates for peaceful co-existence. We salute religious leaders for praying and guiding the country during this tough period.” Said Ruto on Twitter.
Mr. Ruto seems to have officially joined the bandwagon of leaders meeting in the wake of Covid19 social distance rules that prohibit any meetings.
Leaders allied to the DP have been recently barred from holding any meetings with the latest incident having Ex Kakamega senator Bonny Khalwale, in the company of other leaders, dispersed using teargas in Vihiga County.
Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi said the law on Covid-19 should be implemented evenly.
“You cannot have a law that restrains some people under the Covid-19 crisis and allows another segment to break the law wantonly. It should be even,” he said.
