Good morning Kenyans.
It is the second week of the eighth month of the year that has been full of twists and turns in the political arena.
Deputy President William Ruto for another seven days running has been the man on the spotlight.
Ruto made the headlines indirectly after the Turkish businessman Harun Aydin was arrested at the airport.
Reports suggested that DCI detectives had laid a trap for the foreigner after he jetted into the country from Uganda.
According to leaders allied to the DP, it was alleged that Harun was apprehended due to his association with the former URP party leader.
He was, however, deported days later under unclear circumstances.
This brings the big question, was it fair for the man to be kicked out of the country in such a manner?
