Homa Bay county governor Gladys Wanga has snubbed President William Ruto’s visit in the area after she skipped a Sunday service which the president graced at AIC Homa Bay Town
This is the first visit by the President to the region which overwhelmingly voted for Azimio Leader Raila Odinga during the August 9 general elections.
Instead, Wanga sent her apologies through her Twitter handle for not joining the Head of State for the service but extended a warm welcome to him and asked him to “feel at home.”
“HE The President Dr. William Ruto is today 2nd October 2022 scheduled to visit Homa Bay Town to worship with us at the AIC Church. I wish to extend a warm welcome to The President on behalf of the great people of Homa Bay and request him to feel at home. I am, however, out of the county on official duty and will therefore be unable to join HE for the church service and have communicated the same to His Excellency” she said in the letter posted on her Twitter account.
She said the residents were happy to host the President.
“The people of Homa Bay have a culture of great hospitality and will warmly receive The President as he visits to pray with us. Karibu sana (welcome very much)”. She added.
State House did not share the President’s Sunday itinerary, although it is in the public domain the first family rarely skips church.
