Revealed: Three Major Issues President-elect William Ruto Will Face Once He Assumes Office

William Ruto, the next president, has tremendous economic obstacles. These include high young unemployment, rising governmental debt, and high inflation (which is predicted to average 7.1% in 2022).

Although Ruto has advocated for "bottom-up" economic change, nothing is known about his capacity or willingness to implement such policies based on his past experience serving as Deputy President during the previous administration.

More importantly, the court battles his colleagues are currently engaged in and his enormous land holdings represent a hands-off approach to the nation's continuing and unsolvable problems with corruption and land injustice.

Another thing to keep an eye on is how the new administration handles its relationship with China. It is Kenya's top import partner and a significant investor in the nation's expansive infrastructure initiatives.

While running for office, Ruto exhibited hostility toward Beijing. Chinese nationals may be deported, China was accused of causing Kenya's debt, and China-related government borrowing would halt, according to his threats.

If he follows through on these promises, Kenya's relationship with China may become considerably more tense. Future construction initiatives might be put on hold as a result, which would assist keep debt payments under control.
