Uganda President Yoweri Museveni has had plenty of political friends in Kenya. There is a time when ODM party leader Raila Odinga used to campaign for him but at the moment, it is Deputy President William Ruto who has been claiming that he is his friend, something that can be justified by the fact that Ruto was planning to visit Uganda for the second time in less than a month but unfortunately, he was blocked at the Wilson airport.
While DP William Ruto's political relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta has been bad, he has been looking out at President Yoweri Museveni as his friend but today, things took at twist.
Basically, DP William Ruto would have hopped that Museveni and his government would end up being on his side when it comes to his blockage from visiting the country but unfortunately, it seems like Ruto has become a lonely man after Museveni's government publicly accepted and agreed with the move of President Uhuru Kenyatta's government to block Ruto from flying out.
According to reports, Uganda Foreign Affairs Minister Okello said that he wasn't informed of Ruto's visit to the country. He went on to pledge to respect Kenya's decision.
