President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto yesterday held a secret meeting at Diani. Ruto, who was aboard a Kenya Police GY- GSU plane, landed at 1.30pm at Ukunda airstrip and went to Almanara Luxury Resort.
Sources privy to the meeting said the two discussed the consequences of Supreme Court ruling on the petition filed by the Cord alliance. Ruto promised to give details of the meeting at a later date.
"We are in Diani discussing some issues that we will let you know about later," said Ruto. They are said to be working on a plan to counter the Cord coalition in case the Supreme Court rules in their favour.
Uhuru is on record stating that he is ready to hit the campaign trail again if Cord wins the court case. Uhuru said he will accept and respect the ruling.
According the Presidential Press Service, Uhuru and Ruto reviewed the list of Jubilee senators, governors, MPs, women and county representatives.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission on Friday last week gazetted the senators, governors and county representatives.
Security was tight at the Ukunda Airstrip and the resort with GSU personnel and regular police manning the field several hours before Ruto's arrival. Those who attended the meeting included Environment minister and former Matuga MP Chirau Ali Mwakwere and Kwale leaders.
