Incoming President Uhuru Kenyatta has not called or congratulated President-elect William Ruto since he was declared the victor of the fiercely disputed 2022 presidential election, according to Deputy President elect Rigathi Gachagua. He also explained what would happen if Uhuru did not show up for Ruto to be sworn in as the new president.
In a recent interview with Kass TV, Gachagua stated that it is up to President Uhuru Kenyatta to choose whether or not to congratulate Ruto on the victory.
According to him, even if the President skips William Ruto's inauguration at Bomas, the transfer of power to Ruto won't be hindered in any way because the constitution doesn't always require an outgoing president to attend.
Today, DP William Samoi Ruto and his running mate, Rigathi Gachagua, responded to President-elect Uhuru Mwigai Kenyatta's statement that they will never miss the big ceremony electing President-elect William Samoi Ruto to be the next president.
