President Uhuru's Silence and What Will Happen if Supreme Court Uphold Ruto's Election

There is still time for Uhuru Kenyatta to stay president before he hands control over to his successor. Following the Azimio team led by Raila Odinga's vow to bring a case challenging the election, the IEBC on Monday pronounced the vice president the president-elect; he will remain in the Kenya gazette unless the supreme court nullifies the election.

However, the president's lack of public comments has left many people wondering what his political views are. Raila Odinga was able to tag along with the president on campaign stops and other events leading up to the election. The election result stunned everyone when Kenya Kwanza, led by VP William Ruto, decisively defeated Raila. Since the president hasn't issued an official statement, everyone can only guess what he plans to do next.

Once the Supreme Court decides whether or not to confirm Ruto's election as president, Uhuru will be responsible for ensuring a peaceful transition of power. On January 30, there will be a swearing-in ceremony for the next Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, and the current president will formally vacate the White House.
