He pointed out that President Ruto had done this no matter the complexity or sensitivity of political consequences.

“Under your leadership,” President Akufo-Addo said, “Kenya has become a shining example of a nation governed by the rule of law.”

He said under President Ruto’s leadership, Kenya has regained its place of pride at the international stage.

President Akufo-Addo cited declining inflation, growth in start-ups and the number of Kenyans set to have access to housing and health insurance.
