Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday joined Uganda President Yoweri Museveni in his campaign trail, despite denying claims that he was in Uganda for the campaigns.
Earlier in the day, at Kapchorwa State Lodge where the two addressed the people of Uganda, Ruto stated that President Museveni had enough experience and did not need support from Kenya.
Moments later, Ruto was seen in the company of Museveni waving and shaking hands with National Resistance Movement supporters in Sebei.
Ruto was even granted a chance on the dais, where he encouraged the youth to vote for leaders who upheld efforts promoting peace, development and security of the region.
His visit was however not received well by the Opposition in Uganda, who warned him on the alliance he had formed with Museveni.
"Museveni called on William Ruto for support. Wiliam Ruto should be careful of hanging around a falling tree, it might fall on him," FDC candidate Kizza Besigye stated on Twitter.
It is not the first time a Kenyan leader has moved to show support in Museveni campaigns. In 2010, Opposition leader Raila Odinga also crossed over to Uganda to support Museveni's re-election bid.
Museveni has been the leader of Uganda since 1986 and faces a challenge from his former allies Kizza Besigye of FDC and former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi.
