Monday September 2, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto were reportedly involved in yet another bizarre drama on Thursday at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport with Governor Stephen Sang dragged into it.
Uhuru had jetted back from Japan where he participated an international conference. He was received at the airport by William Ruto.
Others who turned out to receive him were Chief of Defense Forces General Samson Mwathethe, Service Commanders, IG Hillary Mutyambai and Nandi Governor Stephen Sang.
Shortly after the reception, a source said, Uhuru entered his official limousine. But after a short drive, his aide-de-camp alighted, then proceeded to having a short conversation with Josphat Kirimi, the presidential escort commander.
Photographers who took shots at the airport were reportedly ordered to delete photos, a move that caught Governor Sang by surprise. He had accompanied Ruto to the airport.
“They were given a stern warning that should any pictures leak, they will be held personally liable,” a source said.
The President had reportedly cautioned his handlers against revealing his movements unless asked to do so. On Monday, he left the country without knowledge of many.
“He has told his handlers his movements are not supposed to be out there unless he authorises the same. Whatever happened there was expected because, to some of us, we had not expected the picture session,” another source said.
State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena declined to answer questions on the airport incident. “No comment,” was her response before she ended the call.
Nandi Governor Stephen Sang is said to have been the reason behind President Uhuru Kenyatta's latest move at the JKIA.
The county boss is facing criminal charges following claims that he incited people to uproot tea bushes in his county. Uhuru is keen to avoid people charged in court.
