President William Ruto reportedly got in touch with Uhuru Kenyatta to ask for assistance in negotiating a peace deal with Raila Odinga.
Reports claim that Uhuru had a part in convincing Raila to put off Azimio La Umoja's planned anti-government demonstrations, which were supposed to start on Wednesday, November 30.
The four IBC commissioners who are under criticism were to be supported by rallies, but Raila, who was supposed to be in charge of organizing them, changed his mind and called off the protests.
Uhuru and Ruto allegedly spoke on Sunday, November 27, in the afternoon, according to insiders with knowledge of the matter.
Outside of the Third Round Inter-Congolese Peace Consultations, Uhuru and Ruto reportedly spoke further on Monday, November 28, at the Safari Park Hotel.
Both leaders took part in discussions on finding long-term solutions to bring peace to the Democratic Republic of Congo with Burundian President Evariste Ndayishimiye (DRC). There are rumors that Ruto and Uhuru discussed calling off the protests.
The President was concerned that the protests might hinder students from taking national exams and slow down the economy.
