Kenyans are now learning why Uhuru did not congratulate Ruto a week later.

Gitile Naituli, a political analyst, believes there is a reason why incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta has refused to congratulate his deputy William Ruto on his election as his successor (Uhuru).

Uhuru has yet to issue a public statement regarding Ruto’s contentious victory in the presidential election, nearly a week after IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati announced Ruto’s election.

According to Naituli, this is because Uhuru is among those who believe Ruto can never win legally and may have entered some games in order to be declared the winner.

The situation, according to the university professor, could change if the petition filed with the Supreme Court confirms that Ruto’s victory was fair and the Supreme Court justices confirm his election.

“I believe he did not congratulate his assistant because he believed he had not won legally. If the court rules that Ruto has won legally, I’m sure the president will congratulate him “According to the professor,

It should be noted that Uhuru has recently had a strained relationship with Ruto and has publicly stated that he will not hand over power to him, even warning Kenyans against voting for him.

He is more comfortable with Raila Odinga, the presidential candidate of Azimio La Umoja, as his preferred successor, for whom he has openly campaigned.

Raila, who finished second in the competition, was referred to the Supreme Court for cheating.

According to Naituli, Uhuru’s silence can lead to disappointment because those entrusted with ensuring the ballot and Raila’s victory failed to do so, resulting in his defeat. “He is loyal to Raila and is dissatisfied with his lieutenants’ performance. But he is acting as president while waiting for the court to rule “He contributed to the newspaper.

However, Uhuru has stated that he will facilitate a smooth transition because Ruto’s partner, Rigathi Gachagua, claims that he and Ruto have yet to communicate.
