“We reaffirm our commitment to continue strengthening the ties of friendship and cooperation with the sister nation,” said the official.
This Monday the Supreme Court of Kenya reaffirmed the victory of President Ruto after dismissing the appeal sent to the court by the opposition which sought to annul the elections.
The petition was promoted by presidential candidate Raila Odinga, who accused the electoral commission of manipulating the results through computer fraud.
On August 15, the results of an election were announced in which Ruto obtained 50.49 percent of the votes, as announced by the president of the country’s electoral body, Wafula Chabukati.
