He told them that despite himself and Uhuru being on different political teams during the 2022 elections, it was important for them to unite and help bring peace to Kenya and the entire Eastern Africa Region. President Ruto reinstated that Kenya’s growth as a nation is dependent on the peace and success of its neighbouring countries, the East African Region, and the entire African continent.

President Ruto appointed his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta as peace envoy for the Great Lakes Region and the Horn of Africa shortly after he was sworn in as the fifth president. He stated that he was confident that Uhuru’s effort would help bring peace to the region as he had already started the process during his tenure as the President of Kenya and head of the East Africa Community.
