Kenya had never experienced an election like the one in 2022. All presidential results were aired by the IEBC on a public website, demonstrating their transparency, and allowing Kenyans to independently calculate the results and choose the winner.
Most presidents from East Africa offered William Samoei Ruto congratulations on his victory and best wishes for leading the country after IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati confirmed him as the 2022 presidential elect yesterday.
Additionally, they commended the entire country for conducting a peaceful election.
The United States of America's embassy in Nairobi sent the most recent communication. The winning candidate, Willliam Ruto, and the Kenyan people were praised by the embassy for their coexistence and tolerance. In addition, the embassy encouraged those who did not agree with the declaration to complain to the Supreme Court.
The US embassy makes a statement that echoes Vice President Biden's remarks after checking with the American president.
At some point in the future, former prime minister Raila Odinga is set to address the country at KICC.
