President Uhuru and Kabando Wa Kabando in a past event.
Yesterday president Uhuru Kenyatta issued his first public statement after supreme court upheld the victory of president elect William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua.
President Uhuru Kenyatta however avoided mentioning the name of the president elect William Ruto but instead congratulated all elected leaders.
Former Nyeri senatorial candidate on a NARC party ticket under Azimio movement has advised the outgoing president Uhuru Kenyatta to follow the steps of former prime minister Raila Odinga and congratulate the president elect William Ruto.
Kabando Wa Kabando gave the example of Raila Odinga in 2013 where the then prime minister Raila Odinga congratulated the then president elect Uhuru Kenyatta after supreme court upheld his win.
Kabando advised president Uhuru Kenyatta to emulate Raila's 2013 example and congratulate president elect William Ruto. He added that common decency, gratitude, courtesy and statesmanship demands the president to congratulate his successor.
The former Mukurweini legislator revealed that they advised the head of state to keep off from his succession politics in vain.
" Rais Uhuru, Sir: Raila congratulated you upon 2013 supreme court of Kenya verdict. Raila joined you 2018. Undeniably UhuRuto made you president 2013. You rejected our advise to keep off 2022" tweeted Kabando Wa Kabando.
" Common decency, gratitude, courtesy, statesmanship demand that you now congratulate president William Ruto. Do it" added Kabando Wa Kabando.
The NARC party candidate lost the senatorial seat to UDA candidate and now Nyeri Senator elect Wahome Wamatinga.
