Ruto, Raila unified by Kip Keino Classic at Nyayo Stadium

 

Sports remains to be the biggest event to bring people of different colors, opinions, standards as well as political stands across the world.

Of late Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga and the Deputy President William Ruto have been attacking each other on different occasions.

The two have hardly met this year, but the presence of the duo at the Nyayo Stadium on Saturday during the Kip Keino Classic has left many Kenyans surprised.

Also, Ruto and Raila were seen on the podium closely talking with each other .

Raila commented on his Twitter account that major sporting events remain a source of wholesome entertainment and bring Kenyans together patriotically.

He said that Kenyans “athletes are exemplary brand ambassadors for which we, as a people, are grateful, asanteni sana. I was delighted to join fans.”

Ruto attended the event in the morning before leaving for a meeting in Nakuru where he met a section of leaders from Turkana County.

Other leaders who attended the event were the Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, Governor Josephat Nanok of Turkana, Public Service, and Gender CSMargaret among others.

World 1,500m champion Timothy Cheruiyot reigned supreme in his specialty.

Despite a niggling hamstring injury that had threatened his participation in the event, Cheruiyot crossed the finish line in3:34.31 ahead of training mate Kumari Taki.

Commonwealth Games 3,000m silver medalist Abraham Kibiwott battled to the finish line with the world under 209 3,000m champion Leonard Bett to win the 3,000m steeplechase title.

On Monday, Ruto snubbed a key national Covid-19  conference where President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila attended.

Ruto's no-show at the crucial meeting convened by his boss to chart the post-Covid way forward further increased the already-high tension in the Jubilee government.
