Details of the three strange documents DP Ruto was ordered to produce at Wilson for his travel

Details have emerged on the three documents that DP Ruto was requested to produce and the humiliation he underwent at Wilson Airport when he was blocked from leaving the country.

The second in command was in the company of his allies when the drama unfolded with his allies addressing a presser revealing the details of the drama.

Led by Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro who narrated that for five and a half hours, the second in command was at the airport waiting for clearance.

When he enquired what documents were needed, Ruto and his entourage were informed that he ought to produce his birth certificate and a letter from the chief to show that he was authorized to travel.

“I have never seen the DP humiliated to such a level. We could hear them on the phone saying that he should indicate who he is. One time they wanted a birth certificate, then his ID, even a letter from the chief. This is not the kind of Kenya we should be proud of,” Nyoro stated.

The Kiharu MP who was addressing the press from Uganda claimed that senior government officials including the Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i were unaware of the clearance Kenya’s second in command needed.

“The immigration officers told us that they had received orders from above not to clear the DP. No one was able to explain who had issued the orders.

“We contacted Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and head of public service Joseph Kinyua who stated that he was not the one who had issued the orders,” Nyoro added.

Nyoro was accompanied by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi  and Benjamin Tayari of Kinango who were cleared to board the commercial flight to Entebbe International Airport while Ruto remained behind.

The lawmakers noted that they were also asked to get clearance from parliament.

“We contacted the leadership of the house who clarified that we did not need any clearance from anyone especially because it was a private visit.”

The drama saw DP Ruto’s allies take to social media in protest.

“In his 9 years in office the DP has never been required to have Clearance to travel, why now? You can keep on humiliating him but remember power is transient and a year from now you will be on your way out and the People of Kenya will decide their destiny,” Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika wrote.

“The Deputy President has never ever required any clearance to travel out of the country. There is no law or regulation requiring him to seek clearance before travel for any public or private engagement. What happened today is a sheer act of impunity and gross violation of the Constitution,” Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen slammed.
