Uhuru Assures Handover of Power to President-Elect William Ruto.
Kenya’s outgoing president, Uhuru Kenyatta has told the Azimio Parliamentary Group that he will hand over the presidency to President-Elect William Ruto on Tuesday with a smile. He made the statement at the meeting before days before he seizes to be Kenya’s President.
“I will hand over power smiling because it is constitutional. Aluta continua… but I will leave knowing Baba (Raila) is my leader.
Don’t think that you have denied Raila. You have denied yourself the opportunity of bringing the country together. You denied yourself an opportunity to bring the country together, You haven’t denied Raila. Msiwekwe Kwa mfuko,” Uhuru said.
He added that politics was not a game of enmity, but warned that Kenyans had passed up an opportunity to bring the country together. He also urged MPs to support Azimio as Parliament selects the next Speakers of both Houses.
According to the DP, Ruto called Uhuru on Tuesday night and they agreed to have a smooth transition in accordance with the country’s traditions.
Uhuru has not publicly congratulated Ruto individually and has expressed concern about the Supreme Court’s decision-making process.
