According to several eyewitnesses, Uhuru and Baba arrived in the CBD via Waiyaki way. A convoy of seven black vehicles was spotted heading to town from around Boulevard Hotel.
It seems the took advantage of the dusk to dawn curfew which has significantly reduced the number of people in town at that hour.
Neither Governor Mike Sonko nor Nairobi Metropolitan Services boss General Mohammed Badi were there to receive them as required. Senior police officers were also not informed of the visit and kept off.

The visit came on the back of the virtual Madaraka Day visit where Uhuru and Deputy President William Ruto had dressed in matching suits and masks.
Raila and Ruto are sworn political enemies but the President has found a way of working with both of them to the chagrin of their supporters.
