“Pale Karen , ofisi ya DP Ruto : HE 5th President of Kenya , Dr William Ruto meets with Tanzania's president , Suluhu,” it reads in a mix of Kiswahili and English.
This roughly translates as: “At Karen, the office of deputy president Ruto: his excellency the fifth president of Kenya, Dr William Ruto meets with Tanzania’s president, Suluhu.”
The photo shows Suluhu holding a sculpture next to a smiling Ruto. He remains deputy president, but is likely to run for the presidency in Kenya’s 2022 elections.
Suluhu arrived in Kenya on 4 May for a two-day state visit, during which she addressed a joint sitting of parliament. Suluhu and her host, Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta, held bilateral talks in a bid to strengthen relations between the two countries.
