DP RUTO and MUDAVADI to tour the United States for 12 days – Will they meet US President JOE BIDEN?

Thursday, February 24, 2022 – Deputy President William Ruto and Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi will on Sunday leave the country for a twelve-day tour of the United States.

According to a statement issued by the Carnegie Africa programme, which is organizing the trip, Ruto will on March 2 hold discussions with the US House Foreign Affairs sub-committee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights representative Karen Bass on politics and policy.

The conversation will be moderated by CEIP Africa Programme Director Zee Usman and Georgetown University’s Ken Opalo,” stated the tweet.

The organization said; “We are honoured to host the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya, William Ruto, for a discussion on the future of governance and economic development in Kenya, East Africa, and the African continent. 

“We invite you to join us for this special conversation with Deputy President Ruto and distinguished guest, US Congress member Karen Bass.

Sunday’s trip will be Ruto’s second out of the country this year, having made a private visit to Dubai last month. 

“It was not immediately clear whether the US trip had been sanctioned by the government, as protocol dictates that such engagements, especially by a person of the DP’s calibre, are cleared at the highest level.

The lecture tour will be Ruto’s second to the West during his 10-year term as Deputy President, having previously travelled to the United Kingdom where he gave a talk at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, commonly known as Chatham House.
