Outgoing president Uhuru finally congratulates Ruto, the president elect.
In a joint press briefing that he gave ahead of tomorrow’s swearing in, Uhuru stated that he wishes president elect William Ruto well, as he starts his journey of running office.
He said,”My entire family and I join all Kenyans in wishing the very best to our next President Dr William Samoei Ruto and extend to him our warmest congratulations in receiving the mandate of Kenyans to lead us as our fifth President.”
This is the first time President Uhuru officially congratulates Ruto ever since the polls were completed.
President Uhuru further said he is optimistic that the incoming president will propel this country forward as he promised.
Uhuru said,”In the prophetic words of our National Anthem, we are summoned to purposefully dwell in unity, peace and liberty, working hard and together so that plenty may be found within our borders.”
President elect William Ruto will be sworn in tomorrow tuesday at Kasarani stadium. The constitution of Kenya mandates that after an election petition has been dismissed, seven days after that will mark the transition of government.
Atleast 20 heads of state are expected to attend the inauguration ceremony including presidential delegation from the united states.
