Rigathi Gachagua Alleges What will Happen if Uhuru will Fail to Attend Ruto’s Swearing-in Ceremony

Vice President-elect Rigathi Gachagua has said that since William Ruto was declared the winner of the contentious 2022 Presidential election, departing President Uhuru Kenyatta has not called to congratulate him or offer his support. He also detailed the consequences that would result from Uhuru missing Ruto's inauguration as president.

Gachagua remarked in an interview broadcast today on Kass TV that President Uhuru Kenyatta has the option of congratulating Deputy President William Ruto on his victory.

Even if the President does not show up to William Ruto's swearing-in at Bomas, he remarked, the transfer of power to Ruto will go forward as planned.

Gachagua claimed that the traditional handing overseen during inaugurations was merely ceremonial and not mandated by law. He cited current Vice President Joe Biden, whose swearing-in ceremony Donald Trump skipped but who is nonetheless functioning as an example.

"Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto have been sworn in as president and vice president, respectively. It is not required that Uhuru Kenyatta show up to Kasarani for Deputy President William Ruto's swearing-in ceremony. There is no constitutional provision for a meaningful transfer of power "As Gachagua put it.
