Since the first case of the deadly COVID-19 outbreak was registered in Kenya, not once has the Deputy President William Ruto been seen anywhere in public addressing citizens.
He has gone low key and has completely disapperated from the public eye.
One would expect that he would accompany the president in the press briefings that he gives every once in a while in addition to the daily COVID-19 briefs that are usually conducted by the Health Cabinet Secretary but this has not been the case.
The last time he was seen in public was during the national prayer day which was held on 21st March.
His absence has made Kenyans to wonder where he is. Is he working from home? If yes, what exactly is he working on? Are they issues related to governance or his personal projects.
When photos of him farming appeared online, many jokingly and insinuated that he was working from home.
Why do you think the deputy President has been so silent on matters COVID-19? Why keeps him from participating or showing up during the presidential briefs?
When a crisis arises, many people put their differences aside and come up together to try find a solution but that does not seem to be the case with our political system at the moment.
This COVID-19 crisis seems to have created a greater rift between parties allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and those allied to Deputy President William Ruto.
