The internet has been abuzz with rumours of a State House meeting between Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader Isaac Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

However, the former Bomet governor rubbished claims of the purported meeting and said it was his wife, an essential worker, who was being airlifted to Nairobi.

In a statement, the politician said the helicopter had come to pick his spouse who needed to transact official business in her office and he also accompanied her in the trip.

“I wish to set the record straight that my travel had nothing to do with the political realignments in the country as it is being speculated on social media,” he said.

Ruto said he had used a chopper a number of times to travel to various destinations. These reports came amidst major overhaul going on in the ruling party where all rebel members are being axed from the outfit.

On Monday, May 11, a section of Jubilee senators met in State House and ousted Kipchumba Mukromen from the majority leader seat and Susan Kihika from the majority whip seat.

Murkomen was replaced with Senator Samuel Poghisio while Senator Irungu Kang’ata replaced the Nakuru senator. Earlier today, Wednesday, May 13, the ruling party announced it would expel five nominated senators who snubbed the PG meeting.

The five include Millicent Omanga, Iman Falhada Dekow, Waqo Naomi Jillo, Pregei Victor, Seneta and Mary Yiane.
