Kenya’s Vice President Ruto apologizes to Uhuru
Vice President William Ruto has publicly asked for forgiveness from President Uhuru Kenyatta following a historic political falling out between the two leaders.
At a National Prayer Breakfast in Nairobi on Thursday May 26, the Vice President admitted that he may have fallen out with the Head of State which made it difficult for their government to keep his promise to Kenyans.
“I also know that as Vice President, I may not have met the expectations of my boss, His Excellency the President, my good friend, I beg your pardon,” Ruto pleaded, as the local media reported.
“I have also been hurt by many people and on this prayer breakfast I forgive everyone, I want us to enter this election without a debt of suffering.”
Uhuru, on the other hand, said he would like to retire peacefully – per DP William Ruto’s prayer – when his term ends in August.
“I hope Ruto’s prayers come true. I look forward to much peace and enjoyment in the years to come,” Uhuru said.
According to local media, religious leaders have in the past called for reconciliation among leaders saying unity of leaders is important as the country heads into the election period.
