Deputy President William Ruto has passed a strong message to President Uhuru Kenyatta as the country commemorates 57th Madaraka Day.
Speaking at State House on Monday June 1, 2020, Ruto told President Kenyatta that Kenyans were praying for him.
The second in command went ahead to note that the coronavirus pandemic has made everybody in the country realise their inadequacy and what God can do.
“Churches are shut, Kenyans have had to leave jobs, businesses are affected and our life as a nation is affected,” he said.
Ruto said that while it was normal to cough, things have turned abnormal.
“When you called the nation to action the response from Kenyans was unprecedented. Every Kenyan stepped forward,” he said.
“As you mobilise the government to this guidelines,. We are confident that under your leadership the government will take necessary decision to ensure that we mitigate the effects of this pandemic,” he said.
