Deputy President William Ruto was on Monday blocked from travelling to Uganda.
The DP’s office says Ruto was scheduled to make a private visit to Uganda but was told to first seek clearance from the Head of public Service.
Three members of parliament who accompanied the DP were also blocked temporarily before being allowed to travel.
The DP is said to have arrived at airport, all set for what would have been his second trip to Uganda in less than a month.
ut he could not be cleared for takeoff, his spokesman David Mugonyi saying in a brief statement.
“He was told that he had to first seek clearance from the head of public service.
When he called Joseph Kinyua, he said he wasn’t aware of such a directive,”’
Ruto is said to have been kept waiting at the Wilson airport from 2pm to 5;15 pm when his journey aborted.
He later returned to his Karen office.
