Is it a must for Ruto to live in the State House? Former statehouse comptroller explains

In as much as the white house is meant for the president of the republic of Kenya, it still remains the president's decision whether to stay live there or not. This is according to Franklin Bett who is the former comptroller of the statehouse. He was a statehouse comptroller under the administration of the late president Daniel Moi. According to him the president may decide to rent another house and make it his official residence. However, he made it clear that it is the government that will cater for those extra expenses. In addition, the government is also expected to an office space where the president will be executing some of his roles. To justify his arguments, Franklin Bett stated the late president Daniel Moi did not live in the state house. That is why he said the decision still remains in the incoming presidents hands. All in all, after swearing in, the outgoing deputy president is expected to vacate his official Karen Residence so that the incoming deputy president can take over. That is the same case with the outgoing president who is expected to vacate the statehouse for the incoming president. What are your thoughts?
