President Kenyatta Avoids Handshake With DP Ruto and Muturi But Shakes Kalonzo at Parliament

President Kenyatta Avoids Handshake With DP Ruto and Muturi But Shakes Kalonzo At Parliament Buildings.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Mama Margaret Kenyatta arrived at Parliament buildings to lead the nation in the public viewing of the body of the third President, the late Mwai Kibaki.

The Head of State was received by his deputy, and now political nemesis, William Ruto.

Instead of shaking hands with all of the leaders, including the DP, Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi, and his Senate counterpart Ken Lusaka, the president bowed with his hands clenched together.

Both Muturi and Lusaka are campaigning for DP Ruto in the August General Election.

Kibaki’s Last Moments Revealed

His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta led the country in viewing the body of former President Emilio Mwai Kibaki which is lying-in-State at Parliament Buildings in Nairobi.

However, Kenyans noticed something unusual after Uhuru avoided shaking hands with some leaders, mostly from the Kenya Kwanza team.

Some Kenyans speculated that he was following Ministry of Health norms by avoiding Dp Ruto at the parliament building, while others questioned why he greeted Kalonzo Musyoka but avoided his Deputy.

The President was seen smiling with Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka as others looked on.

Other leaders at Parliament include Chief Justice Martha Koome, the Inspector-General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and the Chief of Defence Forces Robert Kibochi.
