A man breached president-elect William Ruto’s security to hand him a document earlier today in Njoro, Nakuru County.
The unidentified man was battled to the ground and led out of the podium where Ruto and the Kenya Kwanza leaders were seated during the thanksgiving service at Lamurdiac High School.
Despite being led out of the podium, the man successfully handed over a file to Ruto, whose content Ruto read after the commotion subsided.
Ruto was accompanied by his deputy, Rigathi Gachagua and Nakuru county governor Susan Kihika among other UDA leaders.
During the Nakuru meeting, Ruto asked Kenyans to pray to President Uhuru Kenyatta for him to provide a conducive environment for a peaceful and smooth transition.
“We ask you Kenyans to pray for President Uhuru Kenyatta during this transition time, so that he can have a sound mind to lead Kenyans during this period, and we also pray that when he retires he will have the same respect given to him like those who have been before him,” Ruto said.
On the same breath, Ruto assured Kenyans that he will respect the Supreme Court verdict of the presidential petition challenging his victory.
Ruto went further to say that it is the duty of every Kenyan regardless of their status to respect the rule of law if the country is to go forward.
“There is no other way of pushing Kenya forward, there is no other way of achieving economic prosperity. It is only through observing the rule of law and this will begin from me and all other leaders,” he said.
Ruto was attending an inter-denominational church service at Lamudiarc High School Grounds, Nakuru County.
