Details of What William Ruto Will Start Receiving Today as President-elect

As the IEBC announced, Kenyans decided to vote for William Ruto as the fifth President in accordance with the Constitution. In the same manner, the President-elect has the privilege of receiving high intelligence reports on national security from the National Intelligence Service, the Kenya Defence Forces and the National Police Service. This information is crucial in ensuring that there is a smooth transition of government and is sent through the transitional committee. Source.

If any public officer has any information stated above and fails to share it with the President-elect, they attract a fine not exceeding one million shillings or imprisonment for a term of two years or both. This section of the constitution highlights how important intelligence reports are to an incoming President. Furthermore, both the President and the Deputy President-elect will be provided with high levels of security throughout the whole process and onwards.

In case no election petition shall be filed by the other three Presidential candidates, the President-elect shall be sworn in on 30th August 2022.
