“Let us choose the path of progress, unity and prosperity” Ruto


Vice President William Ruto has urged Kenyans to remain determined to push for the nation’s prosperity and unity as the country celebrates the 59th Madaraka Day celebrations.

In his Twitter account shortly after the Madaraka Day celebration at Uhuru Gardens on Wednesday, the Vice President asked Kenyans not to forget that they are responsible for the next few years to come, reminding them that they are the creators of this nation .

“Today we celebrate 59 years of Madaraka but we must not forget that we are responsible for the next years to come, we are the builders of this nation, choose a path of progress, unity and prosperity”, did he declare.

Ruto said Madaraka Day is a reminder that the people are the sole authors of Kenyan history, calling on them to write new chapters of prosperity and abundance for all; especially ordinary people.

The DP was snubbed during the celebrations, missing a chance to address guests at a national event for the first time.

Only President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Sierra Leonean counterpart, Julius Maada Bio, spoke.

Earlier, President Uhuru hosted the Cabinet for a brief meeting at State House where he thanked them for their support during his tenure.

The Cabinet Secretaries, for their part, thanked the President for believing and trusting them to deliver on his Big Four agenda and wished him well as his tenure in office draws to a close.

As the meeting unfolded, the vice president was at Uhuru Gardens receiving guests, sources saying he was not invited.

Later, the DP attended the Hustlers Cup Final at Thirime Elementary School Ground, Kikuyu Ward, Kiambu County.

Speaking after the tournament, the DP said the August 9 general election was about the economy and how to fix it.

The vice president, who is also the presidential standard bearer for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), was accompanied by his allies Musalia Mudavadi of the Amani National Congress and Moses Wetang’ula of Ford Kenya who pledged to regulate taxes on sports equipment if the UDA forms the next government.
