“I urge all of you to pray for our leader, President Uhuru Kenyatta because he is the one who will be in charge of the transition, that God helps him so that we have a peaceful transition to allow Kenya to move forward,”

He further added that Kenyans have a promise to respect every retiring President should be respected, and that is how President Uhuru will be respected even when he goes to retirement.

“May God help him so that he lives a better life, even as he retires he will have respect and he will hold his position as a former president in Kenya and he will join his predecessors as national leaders and people who have guided this country to where we are,” Ruto stated.

Other leaders who had accompanied Ruto in Nakuru include DP-elect Rigathi Gachagua, Nakuru Governor Susan Kihika, county senator Tabitha Keroche Karanja, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, and ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi among others.

President Uhuru and his Deputy William Ruto have had a frigid relationship since 2017, after the famous handshake that saw Raila Odinga join the government.

President Uhuru has over time called pout on his deputy his big four agenda and for being obsessed with succession politics. The duo even engaged in a public spat with each one blaming the other for the high cost of living in the country.

Ruto’s allies are not happy with President Uhuru’s silence after Ruto was declared the President-elect by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission – IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati.

On the other hand, Ruto’s deputy Rigathi Gachagua has insisted that the swearing-in ceremony will take place with or without Uhuru.

But Ruto has had to be patient and hold a celebration, after his main competitor in the August 9 elections Raila Odinga challenged his win at the Supreme Court.

In his submission, Odinga claims that Ruto did not win the election fairly after four out of seven election commissioners disowned the result announced by the commission chairman, saying the tallying had been opaque.

Raila also accused the IEBC Chairman of committing election irregularities and wants him prosecuted and barred from overseeing another election.

During the thanksgiving prayer, Ruto did not shy away from commenting on the Supreme Court case. He said he has left the case to God and he will respect the verdict of the seven-judge-bench set for Monday, September 5.

The Lady Justice Martha Koome-led bench will either nullify the election and order a fresh election in 60 days, order for a recount, or uphold Ruto’s win and pave way for his swearing-in.
