Deputy President William Ruto who was scheduled to preside over Huduma Namba launch in Kakamega has set tongues wagging after failing to show up for the event.
President Uhuru Kenyatta was in Machakos, NASA leader Raila Odinga in Mombasa Musalia Mudavadi in Kajiado and former VP Kalonzo Musyoka in Murang’a for similar assignments.
The DP, did not honour the assignment, which had been well publicized.
Cabinet Secretaries Amina Mohammed Mwangi Kiunjuri and Eugene Wamalwa were at hand to receive the DP but did not have full information on his whereabouts.
Mr Wamalwa told the crowd that the DP appears to be engaged elsewhere and had sent them to represent him.
CS Amina became the de facto chief guest and presided over huduma Namba roll out launch in Kakamega.
The leaders rallied all Kenyans to register for Huduma Number for ease of government services.
