Taking to social media, Perry cited a packed schedule as the reason for his absence and conveyed his disappointment at not being able to adjust his commitments to meet President Ruto and his party.

Nevertheless, Perry viewed this incident as a compelling incentive to finalise his much-anticipated journey to Kenya.

He extended his gratitude to Harvey for graciously stepping in to host the President and emphasized that his own trip to Kenya is now imminent rather than uncertain.

"The good news is that means I will have to make my way to Kenya very soon! I am honoured, humbled, and thankful that you stopped by President Ruto. Thank you Steve Harvey for stepping in. What a blessing," he added.
