The Star Newspaper has dismissed the news that went viral today claiming that the Deputy President-elect and his Mount Kenya elected leaders were yesterday locked out of a two-hour meeting at President-elect William Ruto’s residence in Karen Nairobi County.
In the news, it was claimed that yesterday, the new Mt Kenya legislators including the Deputy president-elect, Rigathi Gachagua were kept waiting to cause jitters in the function as no one would tell exactly what was happening.
It was also claimed that the women-rep elect for Nyandarua, Faith Gitau claimed that the Mt Kenya legislators were kept waiting for two hours as president-elect, William Ruto met a faction of MPs in the Rift Valley, specifically his Kalenjin kinsmen.
