NAIROBI – Kenya Vice President William Ruto has returned to his home in Karen, a Nairobi suburb after he was on Monday August 2, barred from travelling to Uganda.
Reports in Nairobi on Monday evening indicated that Mr. Ruto, travelling with a business entourage was told that “he would need state clearance before visiting Uganda in a private capacity”.
According to the reports, the deputy president would need authorisation from the Head of Public Service before visiting the country’s western neighbour.
Mr. Ruto said in a simple tweet sent on Monday evening; “Isorait…Tumwachie Mungu. (It’s alright, let’s leave it to God),” he said.
Mr. Ruto is known to have close ties with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and it would appear he wants to milk the relationship ahead of an anticipated bruising presidential bid for the Kenyan number one office.
Mr. Ruto has fallen out with President Uhuru Kenyatta ahead of the upcoming Kenyan elections.
