Last year, DP Ruto’s plans to meet retired President Moi hit a dead-end when Gideon Moi foiled the plans and sent the DP back. He claimed Moi was sick and head gone to see his doctor.

According to Itumbi, Gideon blocked Ruto from seeing Moi because he had not booked an appointment prior to his visit.

“Just take note of this, DP cannot just appear anywhere without prior arrangement and confirmation. Unless its an emergency,” tweeted Itumbi.

The visit, just as the others conducted in 2017 and 2018, was larely planned and executed by Baringo senator Gideon Moi who is considered DP Ruto’s fiercest 2022 elections challenger from Rift Valley.

He also paid a visit to the Ugandan National Assembly Speaker Rebbeca Kadaga who was flown from Kampala for treatment a few weeks ago and is recuperating at a Nairobi hospital.

After the hospital visit, Museveni went to the Kenyatta Mausoleum where he paid homage to the first Kenyan president Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

In his tweet, Museveni stated, “This morning, as I end my three-day state visit to Kenya, I visited the mausoleum where founding president Jomo Kenyatta rests and paid my respects. I also visited Mzee Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi and our Speaker, Rebecca Kadaga, who are in hospital. I wish them a speedy recovery.”


President Museveni became the first foreign head of state to ride the SGR in the country after boarding the Madaraka Express from Mombasa to Nairobi.

During his Kenya visit, the two head of states discussed bi-lateral trades between the two countries that saw an increase in imports of sugar, eggs, and poultry from Uganda.

Kenya also offered to give Uganda a piece of land in Naivasha to enable them build a dry port so as to enhance business.
