President Uhuru Kenyatta is currently chairing a full cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi.
The head of state chaired the first Cabinet meeting this year in January.
During the first meeting, the cabinet approved the establishment of a Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Centre (C-IED Centre) at Embakasi Garrison in Nairobi.
In March, Prrsident Kenyatta chaired another cabinet meeting with his Deputy William Samoei Ruto in attendance.
However, the State House later deleted the photos taken during the Cabinet meeting and uploaded to State House’s social media platforms.
Ruto was seated on the right-hand side at the meeting that was chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The today’s meeting comes at the time DP Ruto had planned to travel to Kisii for a political event.
With State House insisting that the meeting was a full cabinet meeting, DP Ruto might have been forced to cancel his trip to Kisii to attend the meeting.
Earlier this morning, there were running battles in Kisii Town as residents protested presence of crowds mobilized from Bomet to welcome DP Ruto to Kisii town.
Police had a rough time keeping two warring groups apart. Local MP Silyvanus Osoro accused Kisii Governor James Ongwae for emptying truckloads of sewage at Gusii Stadium which woke up to a flooded and stinking grounds after unknown people poured waste on the grounds where DP Ruto was scheduled to hold an event.
