DP Ruto stranded at Kabarak after trying to see Mzee Moi

Just in

The Deputy President  flew to Moi's Kabarak home where he had hoped to pay a courtesy call on Kenya's second President.

Upon landing at Kabarak Gardens, Ruto's delegation which included Energy CS Charles Keter, was informed that Mzee Moi was engaged elsewhere and could not meet them.

The Office of Former President H.E Mzee Moi said that unfortunately, Ruto's visit coincided with the time Moi was undergoing routine physical exercise with his doctors.

However, Mzee Moi agreed to meet the visitors at convenient time another day in the very near future.

The visiting delegation was offered lunch and later left after waiting for the former President for sometime.

Ruto's unsuccessful visit has come in the wake of a reconciliation campaign launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA Leader Raila Odinga.

It also came a few days after Odinga paid Moi a similar courtesy visit.

Although Ruto was introduced to the political stage by the former President, the two leaders have had a hostile political relationship since 2006 when the current Deputy President ditched Kanu for ODM.
