An unexpected lunch meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto has sparked curiosity over what their deliberations were about.

It has since emerged that a handful of Members of Parliament (MPs) were also among the special delegates who graced the lunch.

National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale confirmed that he was present at the lunch while declining to divulge what he discussed with the top national leaders.

Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa was also present for the surprise visit by President Kenyatta.


Jumwa meets Uhuru in private

According to sources who spoke to reporters, President Kenyatta met with Ms Jumwa privately for a few minutes.

The President is said to have found Jumwa with DP Ruto in his office and remained with the legislator for some time before the DP returned.

Soon after the President had met with Jumwa, Mr Duale arrived accompanied by Majority Whip Benjamin Washiali.


The three are the MPs who are believed to have been part of the meeting.

Details of the meeting between the leaders are yet to be shared with the public, however, speculations are rife that it could have been over DP Ruto's recent absence from the President's functions.
