Deputy President William Ruto has quietly jetted back to the country after a four-day trip in Dubai.
A source at the DP’s office told People Daily that he quietly arrived at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Sunday, November 22 shortly after midday.
Ruto left the country silently on Thursday, November 19 for a trip to United Arabs Emirates in company of former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar and his personal assistant.
The DP had chartered a Private Bombardier Global 7500 Executive Jet from JKIA.
His trip to Dubai was so secretive that even Presidential escort commander, his spokesperson David Mugonyi and his assistant Emmanuel Talam, for a moment, couldn’t account for his whereabouts.
The DP later posted photos and a video of famous Turkish butcher Nusret Gökçe, nicknamed Salt Bae, serving him nyama choma.
“This evening, I interacted with hustler Salt Bae, a Turkish butcher, who has created a successful hustle out of salt, nyama and a knife. Mahustler wa Kenyatta, Burma, Dagoretti markets na wengine mko na compe (competition) na lessons hapo, mjipange. Kazi ni kazi, wìra ni wìra,” DP Ruto said.
The DP also posted photos he took with former Nigeria Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Nigerian political activist Timi Frank.
Abubakar was once wanted by the US government for his role in grand corruption. The US government also slapped him with a 12-year travel ban.
Similar questions were raised regarding the whereabouts of Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga.
Raila came out to clear the air stating that he was in an official visit in the Democratic Republic of Congo in his capacity as the African Union (AU) envoy on Infrastructure.
“The AU is jointly undertaking the Inga Hydropower project with President Felix Tshisekedi’s government. It will significantly boost the availability of power in the continent. I discussed its impact thus far and more with the Governor of Lualaba, Richard Muyej in Kolwezi, DRC,” Raila said.
