3 photos from Ruto’s visit to Uganda that elicited swift reactions

Ruto's son causes a stir in Kampala

The DP used the trip to grow his political networks and at the same time used it to foster diplomacy between Kenya and Uganda.

Two photos, however, captured the themes of the trip and drew numerous reactions on social media.

In one photo, Ruto’s son, Kim, appeared in a group photo capturing the DP’s delegation of senior government officials, together with the host, President Yoweri Museveni.

Kim appeared not to understand the seriousness of the meeting as he was dressed in a faded jeans trouser, a sweat shirt, and sneakers.

In the closed session, Ruto sat on Museveni’s right while his son sat on the Ugandan President’s left side.

Other officials including three county governors, several MPs and one CS, sat further at a separate bench.

The photo drew numerous comments from social media users, some commenting on the younger Ruto’s dress code, while other speculated that he was being groomed for a political career in the future.

The other photo that attracted publicity was that of Ruto driving in the same limo as President Museveni.

Kenyans had divided opinion on the camaraderie between the two politicians.
