Rift Valley MPs have accused President Uhuru’s media handlers of wilfully hiding photos of Deputy President William Ruto and US President Barack Obama.
The MPs also claimed state house hid the photos of meeting between President Obama and Opposition leader Raila Odinga, despite being the only known entity who was allowed access to the meetings in order to take photos ‘on behalf of Kenya’.
For DP Ruto, the MPs allege a well choreographed manoeuvre to lock the DP out of critical meetings between the Kenya government and the US leader. For the first time, the MPs reveal the DP had to force himself in some of the meetings where the sitting arrangement completely omitted his participation.
Chairs had to be pulled to accommodate him.
â€œFrom the beginning, we knew what was going on. We were well aware that a group of people wanted to prevent the DP from meeting Obama. It was an attempt to humiliate the DP,â€ said Marakwet East MP, Kangogo Bowen.
The MP further claim there is a ploy to lock DP Ruto out of the 2022 as Mt. Kenya has already picked Peter Kenneth.
The MP said: â€œWe are prepared. We know our friends from Central will not be supporting Ruto in 2022. This is in black and white from the actions and utterances by our colleagues from the mountain (Mt Kenya).â€
