Yesteday, I attended the inauguration of H.E Dr. William Samoei Ruto, the 5th President of the Republic of Kenya. Dr. William Ruto, until his election on 15th August 2022, had served as a two-term Deputy President in Kenya from 2012-2022.
It was such a colourful and moving ceremony which further entrenched the democratic credentials of Kenya.
My wife Samira Bawumia also had a fruitful meeting with her friend, the First Lady of Kenya, Rachel Ruto.
Congratulations to President Ruto, Her Excellency Rachel Ruto (First Lady), H.E Rigathi Gachagua (Deputy President) and Her Excellency Mrs Dorcas Rigathi (Second Lady). May the good Lord protect and guide them as they begin their term of office.
