North Rift Council of elders from various tribes have called upon the President elect Dr. William Samoei Ruto to consider shaking hands with the outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta if possible before his Tuesday swearing in ceremony.
Led by the National Kalenjin Council of elders Chair Major John Seii among others, the Council appealed to the President elect to let go of the past without holding any grudge and forgive in order to commence his duty of leading the Nation to a greater heights without scars.
“We are very delighted to the President elect for his win and we urge him to forgive all his enemies as is entitled to embark on a tough job of heading the nation.” They added.
The Council of elders noted that the President elect while being the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya went through a lot politically and they thank God for seeing him through therefore wants him to forget that and forge ahead.
“Do not hold any grudge to your enemies, forgive and love them as the Bible depicts, “Love your enemies.” They affirmed.
Ruto parted ways with his boss Uhuru Kenyatta after the handshake where he was reduced to a mere leader as nearly all his powers were stripped off by the Government making him powerless but he managed to take it all through a situation many Kenyans say he was overlooked.
Kenyans are now waiting for his transformational agenda within the bracket of the said hundred days expecting a cut down on high costs of living.
