DP Ruto gifts Kisumu arch-bishop top of the range car

Deputy President William Ruto has gifted the incoming Kisumu Arch-Diocese Bishop Most Rev Philip Anyolo with a top of the range car. 

Presenting the brand new Mitsubishi Pajero, the DP stated that the car was a gift from President Kenyatta and himself. 

62 year old Anyolo took over from Zacheus Okoth who has been at the helm of the diocese for decades.

The straight speaking man of God goes down in history as a fearless critic and a defender of human rights during the moi era and afterwards.

The event saw opposition boss Raila Odinga share the podium with the DP for the first time as political temperatures soar.

Other present at the event were CSs Eugene Wamalwa (Devolution) and Raychelle Omamo (Defence); MPs Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini) and Otiende Amolo (Rarieda); Senators Moses Kajwang (Homa Bay) and Moses Wetangula (Bungoma) and Governors Anyang’ Nyong’o (Kisumu) and Wycliffe Wangamati (Bungoma).

Nyongo in hospital

Governor Nyong'o who hosted the leaders was rushed to hospital after he fell ill.

Aga Khan Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Sam Oula revealed that Nyongo was rushed to the facility after he felt uncomfortable during mass at the Uzima University grounds in Kisumu.

He was brought while feeling dizzy and we have administered the necessary medication. We are still keeping him to monitor for any complications that may arise.” Oula said.

"For now, he is stable and in good hands,” he added.
