A meeting of members of parliament allied to the Deputy President William Ruto at his Karen residence to discuss the regulations on public gatherings has been called off.

According to a local daily, the meeting had been scheduled for Wednesday morning with female members of parliament.

The DP will be meeting the male members of parliament in Karen on Wednesday next week as a number of his allies denying details of the said meeting.

Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali confirmed the meeting had been pushed to a different date so as to allow members more time to deliberate on the issue.

"We have called off the meeting for members to observe the happenings in the country and it will be after that, we will converge to discuss on how to proceed with our campaigns,” Washiali said. 

It is Keiyo South MP Daniel Rono who indicated that the DP will meet women parliamentarians with the new rules set by the government taking centre stage.

"The male MPs will have a meeting with the DP next week,” said the Keiyo South MP.

Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa, a key associate of the Deputy President confirmed that there was a meeting scheduled to discuss state regulations that have been seen as a scheme to contain DP Ruto.

Ichung'wa was hesitant to discuss further details relating to the cancellation of the event saying MPs allied to the DP meet frequently and as such the public should not read too much from the reports.
