Deputy President William Ruto had a rather surprise guest in his entourage to Congo brazzavile.

Among those who accompanied Ruto the Central African country was President Uhuru Kenyatta’s brother, Muhoho Kenyatta.

Muhoho is a businessman who oversee the expansive Kenyatta family business empire.

In the photos released by the DP’s press unit on Thursday, the President’s younger brother was seen enjoying a cordial moment with President Denis Sassou Nguesso at State House, Brazzaville.

It was not immediately in what capacity the Brookside CEO had accompanied the DP.

The media-shy businessman recently grabbed national headlines after an MP allied to Ruto named Muhoho as one of the people who had imported the controversial sugar to Kenya.

Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri later clarified that the President’s brother did not import any sugar despite having a licence.

Others who were part of Ruto’s delegation include Mining and Petroleum CS John Munyes, Governors Mutahi Kahiga (Nyeri), Granton Samboja (Taita Taveta) and Trade PS Chris Kiptoo.

The official communique indicated that Ruto would hold talks with the leaders of the Republic of Congo, with the aim of building cooperation in political, economy, trade, investment, agriculture, science, technology, culture, education, health, media, film and sports among other areas.
