By Justus Karanja
Deputy President William Ruto finally resurfaced in Dubai where he visited ailing Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.
Ruto visited Kuria at a Dubai hospital where the legislator is recuperating. He was accompanied by Kapsaret MP Oscar Sudi.
There are reports Ruto’s first stop en-route to Dubai was Milan, Italy, where he met undisclosed investors to raise money for his presidential bid.
Ruto is expected to tour Taita Taveta and Kilifi Counties to popularise the Kenya Kwanza Alliance ahead of the elections.
He is expected at Voi town where he will be received by the County’s gubernatorial hopeful John Murutu among other leaders and political aspirants.
Ruto will later head to Magarini in Kilifi county where he will be received by Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa who is eyeing the Kilifi governor’s position.
The tours come amid concerns on social media on his whereabouts after missing out on the political scene for a day or two.
Photos of the DP accompanied by Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi would later emerge with Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria who has been undergoing treatment in Dubai.
Kuria revealed he had updated Ruto on his recovery even as he invited him for his homecoming.
After his tour of Kilili, DP Ruto will visit Mombasa and Kwale counties to drum up support for his UDA Party as well as the newly found union with ANC and FORD Kenya.
Ruto has continuously presented himself as the best person suited to succeed President Uhuru saying his competitors can’t be trusted.
In his recent Nairobi tour, Ruto urged Kenyans to be wary of ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga saying he can’t be trusted to lead the Country.
But as Ruto tours Coast, Raila will be on 10-day trip, starting with Ethiopia and then India.
