Deputy President William Ruto, who quietly left the country recently for a Dubai trip, is going out of his way to have the best that the Middle Eastern city offers.

The DP took some time off his schedule to hang out with Chef Nusret Gökçe, the internet sensation popularly known as 'Salt Bae'.

DP Ruto could not hide his joy when he met the famous chef, and shared pictures and a video clip as he and his aides dined at his restaurant.

"This evening I interacted with Hustler Salt Bae, a Turkish butcher, who has created a successful hustle out of salt, nyama and a knife. Mahustler wa Kenyatta, burma, dagoreti markets na wengine mko na compe na lessons hapo, mjipange. Kazi ni kazi, wìra ni wìra, mboka ni mboka," he shared on his official Twitter page. 

Salt Bae is a Turkish chef and restaurateur who owns Nusr-Et, a chain of steakhouses.

His art of cooking and preparing meat became an internet sensation about two years ago.

In 2018, President Uhuru Kenyatta, while on an official trip to Dubai, also spent time with the chef.

Kenya's second in command left the country without a word about where he was going, until his pictures popped up on social media on Saturday evening.
