For the first time in quite a while and since taking over as Kenya's fifth Head of State, President William Ruto was spotted in public walking side-by-side with his predecessor, former President Uhuru Kenyatta today on November 28 2022.

President William Ruto and former President Uhuru Kenyatta were pictured in the company of the East African Community Chairperson President Evariste Ndayishimiye of Burundi at the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi.

As seen above, the three leaders seem to have first met at the Burundi President's Presidential suite before leaving with him to Safari Park Hotel for the official opening of the third Inter-Congolese Consultations of the Nairobi Peace Process.

It's while on their way to the hotel that some impressive photos of them were taken to capture the moments.

We could note in the photos that the two leaders were in lively moods and could be spotted having smiles on their faces, an indication that they were in an interesting conversation while heading to the venue of the meeting.

Below are some of those photos:

Upon getting to the venue of the meeting however, we could spot that the EAC Chairperson sat between President William Ruto and his predecessor as seen below.

In these consultations, former President Uhuru Kenyatta is acting as the the EAC Facilitator of the Nairobi Peace Process.

This is because during the 22nd Ordinary Summit of the East African Community Heads of State and Government that was held in Arusha, Tanzania in July this year, he was appointed for that designation and a display of the same could be spotted on the table as seen below.

These consultations are dubbed 'Nairobi III' because they're a follow-up to the first Inter-Congolese Peace Consultation (Nairobi I) which was held in April 2022 and the second Inter-Congolese Peace Consultations which took place in May 2022 in the DRC.
