The deputy president of the Republic of Kenya H.E Dr. William Ruto was among the guests who attended today's national prayer breakfast held at Safari Park. This comes only afew days before general election on 9 August.
Raila Odinga who was expected to be present was nowhere to be seen. However he sent his running mate Martha Karua to represent him. Karua will become Kenya's first ever deputy president if Raila wins in August polls.
What wowed many Kenyans today during national prayer breakfast was when deputy president William Ruto invited Martha Karua to speak. Ruto broke the protocol and gave her the opportunity to speak on behalf of the former prime minister.
Raila Odinga and William Ruto are hoping to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta who will leave office in August. Ruto promised that the coming election will be free and fair and also said that he will accept the outcome because it is the will of God.
Thanks for reading.
