Deputy President William Ruto is for the first time scheduled to travel to United Kingdom (UK) this Friday organized by a British PR firm he recently hired.
The event dubbed “Ruto Cocktail Party” will be hosted by the Deputy President on Friday 8th February 2019 from 1830hrs to 2000hrs in London.
DP Ruto’s spokesman David Mugonyi has said that all systems are in place to ensure the deputy president’s historical event in London is successful. Mr Mugonyi added that at least 1000 Kenyans living abroad are expected to attend the Cocktail Party at a venue yet to be communicated.
“Yes the DP will be travelling to London for an exclusive cocktail party with Kenyans living in Diaspora, we have invited at least 1000 people to attend.” said Mugonyi
However, according to insider sources privy to the planning of the event, it is said that this will be a secret launch pad for the Deputy President to unveil his 2022 Tanga Tanga diaspora campaign team.
The source adds that those willing to attend are being paid between 500 – 1000 British pounds (GBP) depending on your influence and strength. He adds that the mobilization is so vast that air tickets were also being offered to those coming from far within Europe. Others are being flown from as far as United States of America.
However, a section of Kenyans living in London have vowed to stage a massive protest against the Deputy President William Ruto over corruption and being part of conspiracy of crippling the Kenyan economy.
By today, there was no update of the planned visit by DP Ruto in London on the Kenya High Commission(UK) website and social media outlets.
The London cocktail party to unveil the Tanga Tanga diaspora campaign team comes barely days after DP Ruto allegedly disowned his supporters campaigning for his 2022 presidential bid despite Uhuru’s call to stop premature campaigns.
