Saturday, May 6, 2023 –President William Ruto yesterday Friday traveled to the United Kingdom UK to join the rest of the world in the coronation of King Charles III to take place at Abbey.
Making this conformation yesterday Friday May 5, was his spokesman Hussein Mohamed, who said apart from the event, Ruto will meet several other leaders for bilateral discussions.
Homenews.co.ke started following up the happenings in the UK on Saturday May 6 morning and learnt that a steady stream of guests were rolling in – and with it a spectrum of finery.
There was a Greek Orthodox priest in black robes and men wearing traditional, multi-coloured African robes. One even had a matching walking stick.
Men awere in morning suits, some with a top hat. Medals worn with pride.
One trio of three ladies in brightly-coloured suits couldnt miss the photo of a lifetime. They stopped for a selfie in front of the Abbey.
Around half a dozen protesters from the anti-monarchy group Republic were arrested.
They were unloading a van of placards, just North of Trafalgar Square.
Matt Turnbull, one of those arrested, said the straps holding the placards had been “misconstrued” as something that could be used for locking on.
New legislation passed this week made it illegal to prepare to lock-on to things like street furniture.
