Cat walk: DP Ruto attends Waiguru swearing in –PHOTOS

They say there are no permanent friends or enemies in politics –only interests.

So, Deputy President William Ruto once famously dismissed former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru’s defence of her alleged role in the NYS scandal as mere “catwalk and kizungu mingi”.

Kingereza mingi,mnatufanyia catwalk hapa around na ni wazi pesa ya umma imepotea mwenye hiyo pesa anasema aliweka kwa gunia. Sasa kweli jameni dunia hii…” he retorted in 2016.

This came after Ms Waiguru, now Kirinyaga governor, attempted to link two of the DP’s close allies to the Sh871 million scandal.

But on Tuesday, the DP and Ms Waiguru took a short walk from his helicopter to the dais in Kirinyaga University grounds, the venue of her swearing in.

President Uhuru Kenyatta attended the swearing of Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso.

Talk of eating humble pie.
