Friday September 27, 2019 - In what appears to be a change of tactic, Deputy President William Ruto no longer allows delegations to enter into his political meetings with phones.

On Tuesday, Dr Ruto hosted a delegation from Kisii and Nyamira Counties separately, with each group ordered to leave phones in their vehicles before getting into the meeting.

A source, who attended the meeting, intimated that only official cameramen for the DP were allowed to take photos for management purposes.

The source noted that Ruto cautioned members against posting anything on social media including details regarding the meeting, arguing that it wasn't necessary to do so.

"There were many police officers outside the gate. We were all ordered not to enter with phones. The security guys frisked us before we entered."

"After he finished addressing us, he cautioned against posting of the photos on social media. Only his team was taking photos that's why you haven't seen many of us circulating them," the source said in confidence.

The Nyamira delegation was led by MPs Shadrack Mose, Joash Nyamoko and Vincent Kemosi. 

Deputy Governor for Kisii Joash Maangi headed there the Kisii delegation.

Dr Ruto has zoned Gusii region as a battleground in 2022 polls and he's determined to win the region. 

For over a decade, ODM leader Raila Odinga has always won in the region.
