Jovial Uhuru, Ruto ‘hug it out’ during Beyond Zero Half Marathon


President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto were in jovial spirits on Sunday during the Beyond Zero Half Marathon.

The two leaders met after DP Ruto completed the 21m race accompanied by other leaders.

In photos they were seen embracing and shaking hands in a rather social setting, a mood that has not been seen in recent past as political heat increases within Kenyan political circles.

First Lady Margaret Kenyatta took part in the 10km race.

They were accompanied by Central Bank Governor Patrick Njoroge and Amina Mohamed, the new Sports Cabinet Secretary.

Athletes who took part in the race won prize monies with the first three finishers in the half marathon races will take home Sh250,000, Sh125,000 and Sh75,000 respectively, while the top three finishers in the 10km will be rewarded with Sh100,000, Sh60,000 and Sh40,000 respectively.
