William Ruto yesterday morning said that he held a phone conversation with outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta.
• Ruto had said he hadn’t spoken to Uhuru for months while addressing the nation.
Ruto made his intentions of calling President Kenyatta known while speaking at his Karen home.
“I will shortly be putting a call to my good friend President Uhuru Kenyatta. We haven’t spoken in months. I will call him shortly so that we can have a conversation on the process of transition. I know he worked hard in his way but the people of Kenya have made their decisions,” Ruto said in part.
“When I decided to support Uhuru Kenyatta I did not give him any conditions. I take no offense that he chose to support someone else. We will continue being friends; we look to take Kenya to the next level.”
Well, in a recent post on all his social media platforms, the President-elect confirmed that he has since talked with Uhuru on transition matters.
“I had a telephone conversation with my boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta. We discussed the just concluded General Election and the transition as envisaged by our democratic tradition and practice,” Ruto shared.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also issued a brief speech following the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the 2022 election results on Monday.
