William Ruto is expected to leave the country this Sunday for a ten-day tour of the United States of America (USA), the first trip he makes to the American country as Deputy President.
According to reports, the tour organized by the Carnegie Africa program will see the DP hold high-level meetings with government officials, elected leaders, global policy think tanks, and Kenyans in the diaspora.
A tweet by the organizers indicates the DP will on March 2nd hold discussions with the US House Foreign Affairs sub-committee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights representative Karen Bass on politics and policy at Georgia University at 5pm.
The event will be moderated by Carnegie Endowment International Peace Africa Programme director Zainab Usman and Ken Opalo, a political scientist at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service.
DP Ruto, who will be accompanied by fellow Kenya Kwanza principal Musalia Mudavadi will on March 4th meet Kenyans at the Mt Calvary Baptist, in Washington before traveling to the UK to deliver a speech at Kings College in London.
In 2019, the deputy president’s planned trips to the US and Canada was canceled.
