Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has congratulated Kenya’s President-elect, William Ruto, after the country’s Supreme Court confirmed him as the winner of its disputed election.
He congratulated Ruto via a post on Facebook on Monday, September 5, 2022.
Ruto’s rival, Raila Odinga had challenged the election, saying there had been massive fraud.
However, the judges dismissed Odinga’s concerns. They said the evidence presented by the petitioners was false.
Ruto is expected to be sworn in as Kenya’s fifth President next week.
According to the BBC, Ruto commended the judiciary and the Electoral Commission for upholding the “will of the people”, following the court’s judgment.
