President Uhuru Kenyatta has for the first time after a long while met his Deputy William Ruto after a perceived internal fall-out that has been brewing between them for quite long now.
The two had been an unwavering political item after the 2017 polls until when ODM’s Raila Odinga came in thanks to the March 2018 handshake.
President Kenyatta has since been in loggerheads with DP Ruto the latter showing profound objection towards the Building Bridges Initiative which President Kenyatta has been enthusiastically vouching for.
After times of snubbing and avoiding each other in public, the two are gracing a function in a church in Nairobi’s Milimani area.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto wako pale AIC Milimani, Nairobi for the Installation Service for Presiding Bishop Elect Rev. Abraham Mulwa and Deputy Presiding Bishop Elect Peter Kirui of Africa Inland Church Kenya,” Dennis Itumbi, the State House Digital Media Strategist.
In attendance are other leaders including Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Nairobi’s Johnson Sakaja.
This comes after the Deputy President loosened his stance on the much talked about BBI promising to join the trail and dance to the prevailing tune.
Many are eagerly waiting on what will politically come out of the service in AIC Milimani which is currently underway.
As many take it for a big deal, others have equally dismissed the perception being created saying it is not uncommon for the President to mingle with his Deputy.
It is unclear whether or not the two will grace the convention of Jubilee leaders that is slated for the evening of Sunday 26 in Naivasha.
According to Gatundu South legislator Moses Kuria, the meeting in Naivasha will deliberate on issues among them being the BBI and the strategy for the party’s win in 2022.
