However, KDRTV reported that the DP is scheduled to address the ceremony after ODM leader Raila Odinga who is a co-partner in the handshake initiative.
Ruto controversially missed last month’s COVID-19 seminar to the chagrin of his political rivals who claimed that he had vacated the position of the Deputy President.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will be the chief guest at the event which was scheduled to start at 9:30 AM. However, the President had not arrived as late as 10:45.
ODM leader Raila Odinga is already at Bomas. Amani leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula are also at Bomas.
