Friday September 13, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday made an unexpected stopover in Kisumu on his way to Uganda.
The military chopper carrying the Head of State landed at the Kisumu International Airport, at midday, after which the President disembarked and boarded his official jet to Uganda.
The short stopover caught security chiefs and residents unawares since no official communication had been made regarding the stopover.
Reports indicate that the plane spent a few minutes at the airport before leaving for Uganda where the President is set to meet his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni.
An officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said Uhuru did not leave the VIP lounge while at the airport.
“He spent a very short time at the airport. He landed in a military chopper and quickly boarded the white jet that flew him out of Kisumu,” said the officer.
“He just flew to Kisumu to change planes. There is nothing much,” said a senior government official.
