After their meeting at the State House, the outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta has finally sent his congratulations to the incoming President William Ruto.
There was a meeting between the two on the afternoon of September 12, only hours before William Ruto is now to be inaugurated at Kasarani Stadium.
“My family and I join all Kenyans in wishing the very best to our next President Dr. William Samoei Ruto and extending to him our warmest congratulations for receiving the mandate of Kenyans to lead us as our 5th president,” said Uhuru is his address to the nation.
The President said in his speech that he was prepared to hand over his position as required by the Constitution.
He also urged the next president to remember that he would be representing all Kenyans, not just those who voted for him.
He went on to give credit to his Cabinet for helping him fulfill his pledges throughout his decade in office.
