Parliament Drama as DP Ruto Allies Are Locked Out Of State Of Nation Address

The president Uhuru kenyatta is expected to address thr Nation in what will be his 8th state of nation address before he exits office next year.

However the state address has had some dramas after it emerged some deputy president William Ruto's allies had been locked out of the state address.

At some minutes past 2 pm the Deputy President William Ruto arrived at Parliament after his allies were locked out from Uhuru's event.

The DP was received by both the two Speakers at Parliament. 

Earlier, Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen has alleged that there was a plot to lock out Dp Ruto allies from the state of nation address.

He stated that "Very petty on the part of my colleagues in the Senate leadership to lock out Senators supporting the Deputy President from the event. They should remember Article 132 of the Constitution requires President to address Parliament, not Baraza la Azimio ya Kieleweke."  

In observance of social distance and the Public Health Act, only 27/67 Senators were invited to the session that will take place in the main chambers of the National Assembly.

Out of the 27, only 1 Ruto-allied Senator, Aaaron Cheruiyot (Kericho), made it to the list by virtue of being a member of the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC). 

Among those in attendance is the Odm leader Raila Odinga.
