On May 19th, there were rumors that DP Ruto was rushed at the Nairobi hospital after collapsing at his Karen home.
Blogger Robert Alai broke the news on social media saying a VVIP (Very Very Important Person) was ailing as a convoy of high end vehicles and ambulances was seen rushing from the posh neighbourhood to the hospital.
It however turned out to be false as Ruto joined President Uhuru later on in the day during his tour of the North Eastern.
