Ruto’s father-in-law to lead prayers in State House

Ruto’s father-in-law to lead prayers for the President-Elect in State House after the swearing-in ceremony.

Samuel Kimetto, the father-in-law of William Ruto, has stated that he is prepared to lead elders in prayer for the President-elect in the State House following his inauguration.

After the Supreme Court upheld Ruto’s victory in the August presidential election, Mr. Kimetto stated in a statement yesterday that his son-in-law had shown the world that it was possible to rise from a lowly beginning to the nation’s highest levels of authority.

“It has been a long journey for my son-in-law, and the best thing I can do for him is to lead elders in blessing him at the State House. I have been confident that he won the elections fairly,” Mr. Kimetto said at his home in Sugoi, Uasin Gishu County.

Mr. Kimetto, 87, said Ruto is a generous son-in-law who has sought his counsel ever since he married his daughter Rachael in 1992.

His home and that of the President-Elect is about three kilometres apart, in the Sugoi, Turbo constituency.

Ruto’s father-in-law asked Kenyans to respect Azimio one Kenya leader Raila Odinga said he is one of the country’s eminent elders and has earned a place in the country’s history.

“Ruto is our fifth President, but this should not make us disrespect Raila because he took him to the Supreme Court. We are a people who respect our leaders regardless of their political divide,” Kimetto said.
