The DP also said that he would work together with his political competitors to expand Uhuru’s legacy.

“My competitors and I will make sure we build on the legacy you have set. Your legacy has set the standard for your successors,” he added.

“We celebrate the many people who worked so hard and paid the huge price to be the nation we are today. Mr. President, we celebrate you as our leader, your place in the history of Kenya is secure and prominent as a transformational leader,” he concluded.

His statement charged the gathering at the stadium, showering him with claps and cheers as he paved way for the Head of State to take the podium.

Prior to his speech, the DP and his boss are engaged in a hearty chat. Ruto is seen speaking to Uhuru who appears to be happily explaining something to him.

He nods in agreement after which they fist-bump before the DP makes his way back to his seat.

Since their second term re-election, the duo’s relations have been frosty.

At one point the president dared his Deputy to resign from the government if he was displeased with its operations.

In response, would hear none of that saying he was duly elected to serve the people.

Ruto Makes Promises to Uhuru as Crowd Cheers On

Deputy President William Ruto’s assurances to his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, thrilled the Mashujaa Day attendees at Wang’uru Stadium, Kirinyaga.

Ruto, on Wednesday, October 20, promised to safeguard Uhuru’s legacy after the Head of State retires in 2022. The DP praised Uhuru as a transformational leader whose reputation and development agenda would guide his successors.

“I assure you that as your deputy for nine years, your legacy and agenda and transformation of our nation together with the bottom-up approach will drive this country,” Ruto stated as the crowd cheered on.

Uhuru, who favours a trickle-down economic model rather than Ruto’s bottom-up approach, was also spotted laughing at the DP’s thinly veiled attack.

The DP further claimed to speak on behalf of all opposition leaders who had attended the meeting, when he assured Uhuru that they would work in unison and champion for peace and posterity.
