Dp Ruto Misses Key Government Function As Raila Represents Uhuru At Devolution Summit

President Uhuru Kenyatta was expected to be the special guest of honor at the devolution summit in Makueni County. The president would not be physically present at the summit, according to Governor James Ongwae, the council of Governors' deputy chairperson. 


However, Raila Odinga, the former Prime Minister of Kenya, is slated to inaugurate the seventh devolution conference in Wote, Makueni. At 11 a.m., Raila came at the conference. On Friday, the three-day festival will come to a close.

The celebration also included a tree-planting program that resulted in the planting of 1,999,999 trees. The trees were planted in the counties of Makueni, Machakos, Kitui, Embu, and Kajiado. During the summit, President Kenyatta is expected to plant the two millionth tree.


Raila and Dr. Matiang'i were accompanied by numerous cabinet secretaries and principal secretaries from several ministries to the summit.


 The two have been resoring the president on several occasions, prompting UDA members to accuse them of abdicating duties of deputy president.

The deputy president's main responsibility was to represent the president on various occasions, but this changed when the president noticed that his deputy was utilizing these opportunities to publicize his name in the run-up to the 2022 elections.
