President-elect William Ruto Will Be Sworn in Without You- Rigathi Gachagua To Uhuru Kenyatta

According to Deputy President-elect Rigathi Gachagua, the swearing-in of the new president will take place even without the presence of outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The result of a petition that Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga intends to bring with the Supreme Court will, however, have an impact on this.

In an interview with Kass TV on Tuesday, Deputy President William Ruto Gachagua said that his absence from the transition and handover process would not in any way affect it. On that day, Odinga vowed to challenge the election of Gachagua.

According to statements Uhuru has made in the past, he will not cede power to Ruto.He highlighted the US as an example, when the recently-defeated Donald Trump avoided the swearing-in ceremony for Joe Biden, the new president.

The outgoing Mathira MP stated, "What is just required during the swearing-in ceremony is the presence of the Chief Justice; it is not even that sword, that is only ceremonial.
