William Ruto allies have expressed their disappointment after he was barred from flying to Uganda on a private tour.
The second in command was set to travel to Uganda on Monday, August 2, when he was stopped from flying using a chattered place
Also set to travel with William Ruto were Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi, businessmen David Lagat, Harun Ayoin, David Muge, Simon Mogun and Nelson Kisalit.
In a post made o his Twitter account after the fiasco, Ruto said that he leaves it all to God.
The former Eldoret North MPs allies have protested the move by the government to block him from flying to Uganda.
Kapseret Member of Parliament, Oscar Sudi narrated the events that led to the cancellation of their trip to Uganda.
“We were held for more than 5 hours at Wilson Airport together with the Deputy President William Ruto. Our flight was scheduled for midday but the so-called Deep State failed to clear the DP.
Speaker JB Muturi cleared us together with my colleague Ndindi Nyoro since our flight was private,” the Kapseret MP said.
According to Oscar Sudi, the order to bar DP Ruto from flying to Uganda came from President Uhuru Kenyatta himself.
“We had to wait longer than we expected until the DP became impatient and left the airport for home. We were told Uhuru Kenyatta himself declined to clear his Deputy.
“I have always been telling you that we are officially back to the dark days of KANU and KADU,” Oscar Sudi added.
Other William Ruto allies have decried the move, terming it as impunity of the highest order.
The push and pull by Ruto and the government comes after claims by COTU Secretary-general Francis Atwoli that he aims at importing firearms from Uganda.
DP Ruto has been a frequent visitor to Uganda due to his personal relationship with President Yoweri Museveni.
