Two Women Who Trekked From Sugoi to Nairobi With a Mkokoteni For Ruto’s Inauguration are Stranded in Nairobi

Two women who trekked from Sugoi, Uasin Gishu county, to Nairobi for President William Ruto’s inauguration on September 13 are now stranded and are seeking audience with the Head of State.

The duo that covered a distance of over 365 KMs while pulling a cart, unfortunately missed the swearing-in event after they arrived in Nairobi late.

Three weeks after President Ruto’s ascension to power, the two are still stuck in Nairobi and are now claiming that they will not return back home until they meet the Head of State.

Evelyne Chepkemei said that they are seeking to secure an appointment to meet President Ruto so that they award him the cart for his victory and “pray together”.

“I came from Sugoi to witness Ruto’s swearing in after there I went to State House with my cart. Upon my arrival I was asked to produce my appointment then I said my appointment is the cart. I was then directed to go to Karen where I went and left my cart there hoping I would get my appointment,” she told The Standard on Thursday.

“Up to now I have not met Ruto and the main thing that brought me to Nairobi is to award him this cart as we talk and pray together for Kenya Kwanza’s victory.”

Her counterpart Eunice Tabut disclosed that they have been hosted by a “good Samaritan” for the period they have been in Nairobi.

“We travelled for a period of 5 days and when we left there we were tired. We met with a good Samaritan who has hosted us for the last three weeks and we have not been able to meet President Ruto,” said Ms Tabut.

“We were patient when he went to Queen Elizabeth’s burial and now that he is back we seek to see him so that we can head back home.”
