"He should have sent Gachagua. Then dispatch him to New York for the General Assembly."

Political Analyst Mutahi Ngunyi now says President William Ruto should not have left the country in this transition period.

In a statement  on Monday evening, Ngunyi stated that the President should have dispatched his deputy Rigathi Gachagua to Queen Elizabeth's burial and later to the United Nations Gneral Assembly.

"I am not sure that going to the queen's funeral was a good decision for Ruto. He should have sent Gachagua. Then dispatch him to New York for the General Assembly," Ngunyi tweeted on Monday.

He added:

"Excuse: We are a country in transition. Arap Moi did this for Jomo Kenyatta. And Gachagua is more eloquent. Am I wrong?"

The President left the country on Sunday for the united kingdom where he attended the state funeral before leaving for the United States of America.

He will be attending the UN General Assembly in New York.

The analyst, however, feels the task could have been handled better by the deputy president.

When leaving the country for the first time as President, Ruto said his trip seeks to boost relations with foreign countries.

"Strengthening ties with the international community will catalyse the transformation of our country. Departed for London, UK to attend Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s burial. Later I will join world leaders for the 77th Session of the UN General Assembly, New York,"he stated.
