Word in the high streets of power is that Deputy President William is now blaming powerful statehouse operatives for blocking his alleged scheduled visit to DRC Congo. The deputy President knew very well that as a war crimes indictee he was NOT to be allowed anywhere close to Obama’s top diplomat US Secretary of State John Kerry.
The DP had arranged a whirlwind tour of DR Congo and Congo Brazzaville to avoid the embarrassment but it is said that Statehouse failed to approve his trip. Instead they lied to him that he will join Uhuru at statehouse for talks with John Kerry.
The USA Embassy (by extension state department) that is charge of Kerry itinerary is said to have made it clear that Ruto will NOT be allowed to shake hands with Kerry. Last week Ruto was at the airport welcoming former US president Bill Clinton. President Clinton was in the country to oversee his charity activities under the flagship of the Clinton Global initiative- he was here as a private citizen not representing the USA government and that is why it was easy for Ruto to get access.
Ruto is now said to be shopping for an invitation to a foreign land, with most ambassadors coming from Uhuru’s inner circles it is getting difficult for Ruto to get a quick fix.
Aden Duale is rumoured to have proposed to DP to visit Kismayu and Mogadishu in Somali to pay a surprise visit to KDF and African Union force bases.
HERE is how one pundit captured it all>>>
Huyo jamaa should borrow some tricks from his erstwhile friend Raila Odinga. This is the time to go out on some trip outside the country. He can come back after that Yankee has left. When the other bigger Yankee comes to visit in July, huyo Jamaa can go out on another visit outside the country. That will stop all those speculations or even the prospect of being held incommunicado in Karen. Those Yankees are capable of anything. If you doubt that, wait until you see those mean looking marines standing atop Harambee House while holding dogs by the leashes. Or better still ask Prof. Ongeri. By the way, why are they called ‘marines’?
