Speculations are awash after rumors emerged, asserting that President Uhuru Kenyatta had airlifted former Bomet Governor, Isaac Rutto to State House today.
Photos of a chopper that was sent to pick the Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader from his Tumoi, Chepalungu home in Bomet County were shared on several social media platforms. However, efforts to reach the former governor for a comment were futile.
The meeting between Isaac Ruto, a fierce rival of Deputy President William Ruto, and Kenyatta comes at a time when the Head of State and DP Ruto are embroiled in what has been described as a political cold war.
Kenyatta has seemingly isolated DP Ruto from the government, ejecting one of the DP’s allies from Cabinet, removing Ruto’s diehards from the party Senate leadership.
