Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has congratulated President-elect William Ruto after the Supreme Court upheld his win.
Speaking at a during a burial at Mukalala village in Yatta, Machakos County on Saturday, Kalonzo said that even though they did not agree with the Surepem Court ruling, they would swallow their pride for the sake of the Country.
“I congratulate the President-elect, who will become President on Tuesday, William Ruto. We respect him…we did not agree with the verdict of the Supreme Court but we are bound by it. This is what a nation is…we will swallow all the bitterness because of our country, knowing that God is with us,” Kalonzo stated.
The former Vice President dismissed reports that he met Ruto after a photo taken in 2018 went viral on social media.
Kalonzo noted that he would meet Ruto at the right time and only after consulting Wiper and Azimio la Umoja.
“Kuna wengine walikuwa wanaweka kwa mitandao jana wakisema ati Kalonzo amekutana na William Ruto. Jameni, Ruto alikuja kuniona wakati nilipoteza baba yangu mzazi 2018.
“Mimi si mtu wa kichinichini. Nikitaka kukutana na Ruto nitakutana na yeye wazi baada ya kufanya mazungumzo na chama chetu cha Wiper na Azimio-OKA," he said.
