Ruto was not locked out of Uhuru-Raila meeting at Bomas — State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena

By Vincent Kejitan | December 6th 2019

State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena on Thursday dismissed claims that Deputy President William Ruto was locked out of a meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga at Bomas of Kenya.

Moments after the launch of BBI at Bomas, a video of Ruto standing outside while President Kenyatta and Odinga were holed up in a meeting did rounds on social media and many thought that the writing was on the wall for the DP.

However, while speaking to journalists on Thursday, Dena clarified that Ruto was actually part of the meeting but was the first one to leave the room.

"What surprises me is that no one captured the three leaders when they walked into that meeting and held talks.

“Ruto was the first of the three to leave the room and that is why he was captured alone as he waited for two to come out," she explained.

She also cautioned the media against creating an impression of division between the DP and the Head of State.

"We are reporting things that we don't know exactly what was happening to create an impression that there is a division between the president and his deputy.

Take a survey

Let us just be a bit cautious and a bit careful," she said.

The BBI has already brought division with some saying it is meant to favour some politicians ahead of the 2022 election.

Recently, the President warned politicians against using the document to incite Kenyans saying everyone should read it first instead of forming an opinion.
