DETAILS: Ruto boycotted Kakamega Event after being Denied tenders


William Ruto

Deputy President William Ruto was the talk of town on Tuesday after boycotting the launch of Huduma Namba in Kakamega county.

Even though, Ruto issued a statement saying that he missed the function because had met a Cuban delegation led by the Vice President of the Councils of State Ines María Chapman Waugh.

Fresh details have emerged saying that the DP was not happy with something to do with tenders.

The procurement of the equipment being used was single sourced and did not land in the hands of one of Ruto allies as expected.

Insiders say Uhuru is bitter that Ruto can attend six functions within a day all in the name of Tanga-tanga but fail a Jubilee landmark project.

The schedule of leaders overseeing the activity — which included the main opposition chiefs — had been released at the weekend.

Key opposition figures, including ODM leader Raila Odinga, former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka, Amani National Congress chief Musalia Mudavadi and Ford-K leader Moses Wetang’ula gave the Sh6 billion project a boost by unveiling it in Mombasa, Murang’a and Kajiado counties.

President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga, who termed the launch a milestone for the country, said the unity between the government officials and the opposition signalled an end of tribalism in the country.

“Today, Raila Odinga is in Mombasa, Musalia Mudavadi in Kajiado, and Kalonzo Musyoka in Murang’a leading the NIIMS registration. Today marks the end of tribalism in Kenya. Let us celebrate our nationhood as a people,” Mr Kenyatta said at the Masii public grounds.
