We Are ready for Court Battle-Ruto Respond to Unsatisfied Raila Odinga


William Ruto the president-elect of the Republic of Kenya has said that if there will be a court process, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) and Kenya Kwanza coalition will engage in it because they are democrats and believe in the rule of law.

On Monday, the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati declared William Ruto the winner of the 2022 presidential elections with 7,179,141 votes

His main rival Raila Odinga of the Azimio la Umoja coalition, however on Tuesday, rejected the results on Tuesday and threatened to contest them in the Courts of law.

Ruto made these remarks while addressing a meeting of the newly elected Governors, leaders of the Senate, National Assembly, and Woman representatives in their first Caucus convened at his Deputy President’s residence in Karen.

In this meeting, Ruto also said that the broader mandate that came with their coalition winning with 25% in 39 counties comes with a responsibility to every Kenyan.

“There will be no room for exclusion of any part of Kenya and we are going to govern in a manner that no part, sector, and community is left behind because the people are already telling us that we need to change the politics of our nation and eliminate ethnicity in governance” Ruto added.

Confident Ruto also highlighted that all Public Servants in his government will serve all Kenyans equally without favoring anyone because of their tribes, communities, and political affiliations.

“Because we intend to deliver as a government, the Public Service is going to be a very important tool in the delivery of services & programs and I commit that they will all be professional across the board” Ruto articulated.

In that same spirit, Ruto called upon all those Public Servants who were forced to take political positions in the just concluded elections to step back and carry out their mandate professionally because in his view the only way their government can deliver is by political parties looking for their own people to run their political activities and business.

The Deputy President also hinted at transparency and he highlighted that his government will be accountable and in a near future it will engage in discussions to adjust standing orders to make it possible for Cabinet Secretaries to answer their government policies implementations on the flow of Parliament.

By end of government business on Tuesday, William Ruto and his Deputy Rigathi Gachagua’s names had been printed in the Kenya gazette by the IEBC chairman as article 1(38) of the constitution dictates.

In addition to the first caucus meeting with elected leaders, William Ruto also met various religious leaders at his home in Karen.
