Homa Bay Town Member of Parliament (MP) Peter Kaluma now claims that he has received a phone call from President William Ruto after skipping his visit.
On Sunday, October 2, the President worshiped at African Inland Church (AIC) in Homa Bay Town in a first visit of Nyanza region after being sworn into office.
Although he was welcomed by a number of local leaders and the church clergy, the area MP and the governor skipped the event.
The governor, Gladys Wanga, announced that she wasn't in a position to join the President for she was out of the county on official duties. She however welcomed Ruto on behalf of the locals adding that she had communicated with him concerning the issue.
On his side, Hon Kaluma earlier claimed that he wasn't informed of Ruto's visit and only came to learn about it when it was too late. He urged the coordinators to be notifying area MPs in advance for preparations.
Ruto's alleged phone call
The lawmaker now claims that he has received a phone call from the Head of State. According to him, Ruto has promised to inform him of his future visits in advance.
"President William Ruto has just called to confirm his office will inform me of his future visits of Homa Bay Town Constituency," he said.
Kaluma added that the President has also promised to be sending his Air Force helicopter to be picking him whenever he gets such information late.
"He's also promised to send Air force One to pick me up whenever information shall reach me late!" He added.
