Details of Wanjigi's Surprise Visit to Ruto's Home

  • Details have emerged that businessman Jimmy Wanjigi was present at a lunch meeting hosted by Deputy President William Ruto at his Karen home on Friday.

    The meeting was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition Leader Raila Odinga who had come from a memorial service for the former Maendeleo ya Wanawake chairperson, the Late Jane Kiano at the ACK St. Francis Church.

    The first to arrive at the DP’s home was Uhuru who spent about twenty minutes with his deputy.

    According to Ruto’s Twitter handle, the two discussed issues related to national development and unity.

    An ally of Odinga told Nation journalists that it was the president who asked the former Premier to accompany him, and he in turn invited Wanjigi.

    Senator Kipchumba Murkomen who was also at the lunch meeting stated that the DP used the opportunity to extend an olive branch.

    The Jubilee administration has been on Wanjigi’s case for over one year after a state-sponsored investigation into his lifestyle before and after last year’s general election.

    At one point, Odinga had to keep an overnight vigil in the tycoon's house to prevent his arrest.

    He is currently fighting a case in which he is accused of being in possession of guns illegally.
