ODM Politician Praises Ruto Over His Speech at The UN's 77th General Assembly

President William Ruto has wooed thousands of Kenyans following his eloquence and brilliant speech while making an address at the 77th's session of the United Nation General Assembly in New York.

Shortly after Ruto took to the floor at 9pm, Kenyans of different political divides expressed their reactions, with most of them lauding the fifth president.

Taking to his Twitter account, ODM politician Alinur Mohamed termed Ruto a sharp man, saying that credit should be given where it is due, and Ruto has outdid himself.

"President William Ruto's address at the United Nations General Assembly has reminded me two people lost their job at State House when President William Ruto and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua won. That is the State House Speechwriter and the whisky supplier.Ruto doesn't need written speeches, he gets them from his head."

"The speech by President Dr. William Ruto at the UN Assembly is on another level. Very eloquent. Always give credit where its due," he added.

Kenyan academia and politician James Kiyiapi also praised Ruto's speech, "President William Ruto maiden Speech in New York, UN General Assembly, is bold and delivered powerfully. He has touched on key issues relevant to the global community and to our region, and country. He has outlined ecological concerns critical to our existence. Actually very well done."

In his speech Ruto addressed key issues among them climate change, agriculture, financial burden, security and impact of covid-19.

The president jetted out of the country on Sunday to attend the burial of Late Queen Elizabeth that took place on Monday before attending the opening of the UNGA conference yesterday.

His foreign trip came less than a week since he assumed the office as the fifth president of Kenya.
