Details Emerge on Where DP Ruto Will be This Weekend

It appears as if the political situation in the country is approaching its apex as the countdown to the 2022 general elections continues to draw closer with each passing day. The key players in the 2022 race - deputy president William Ruto and ODM party leader Raila Odinga continue to make critical moves to place themselves in a strategic position to capture the country's leadership.

And now, details have emerged on where deputy president William Ruto will be holed up for the entirety of this weekend. The Saturday Standard reports that the country's second in command will be at the famous Masai Mara game reserve in Narok county for a three day retreat that is starting today. This is the same place that he was recently, meeting Kakamega county governor Wycliffe Oparanya at the same game reserve after initially meeting him at Kilgoris.

The agenda for Ruto's 3-day stay at Masai Mara has also been revealed after it emerged that he will be discussing economic matters with a powerful delegation of over 40 members of parliament drawn largely from the Mt Kenya region.

Ruto and MPs drawn largely fr Mt Kenya will be deliberating on what will be at stake for the Mt Kenya region once he becomes president and is expected to feature high ranking politicians like Murang'a county senator Irungu Kang'ata, Kikuyu constituency member of parliament Kimani Ichungwah, Kandara member of parliament Alice Wahome, Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua among others.

The meeting comes after the politicians met with experts largely drawn from retired president Mwai Kibaki's economic team, among them being renowned economist David Ndii.
