Kenyans quoted Uhuru as saying, “As a hallmark of our democracy, therefore, I will, before God and my fellow countrymen, handover the instruments of power to our new president at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani and with that, the fourth administration will come to an end and the tenure of the fifth administration will begin.”

 

“My family and I join all Kenyans in wishing the very best to our next President Dr. William Samoei Ruto and extending to him our warmest congratulations for receiving the mandate of Kenyans to lead us as our 5th president.”

William Samoei Ruto sworn in as President of Kenya

Ruto, Kenya’s Deputy President, was declared winner of the August 9 election by the Independent and Electoral Boundaries Commission.

 

Raila Odinga had filed a suit challenging the election results as announced by the IEBC in August.

 

Delivering the ruling Monday morning, Chief Justice Martha Koome struck out Odinga’s suit and upheld the election of Ruto as the president-elect Kenya.

 

“This is a unanimous decision. The petitions are hereby dismissed, as a consequence we declare the first respondent (Ruto) as president-elect,” Chief Justice Koome said.

 

The court dismissed all nine issues of contention in the suit.

 

Koome declared that the alleged irregularities in the election “…were not of such magnitude as to affect the final results of the presidential election.”
