Kenyans on Twitter are at it again and are welcoming Deputy President William Ruto to their homes after he was allegedly ‘blocked’ from seeing retired President Daniel Moi after waiting for three hours at his Kabarak home.
The DP was accompanied by Ainabkoi MP William Chepkut, lawyer Stephen Kipkenda and Energy CS Charles Keter. Sources privy to the situation say that Ruto did not have an appointment with Moi.
The four are said to have been welcomed for lunch but later left after being informed that the retired President was at a ‘routine physical exercise with his doctors.’
Bwana DP, @WilliamsRuto it seems some people have forgotten the traditions and norms of the Kalenjin community. Guests are to be welcomed, makionee ton (Don't chase away a visitor), it is a taboo. But don't worry #karibukwanguDP pic.twitter.com/h6FWmIXBO3

On Friday, Moi’s granddaughter, Laila Denise Ibrahim hit back at the ‘hustler.’
Laila insinuated that that Ruto showed up unannounced at Kabarak.
“There was a protocol fail on the DP’s side, you cannot just show up… without prior arrangements. Least forgetting that Moi is still a well-respected statesman,” she posted on Facebook.
Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga had a meeting with Moi on April 14, 2018.
