His message to Dr. William Samoei Ruto comes after the Supreme Court of Kenya upheld the 2022 presidential election results declared by IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati.

Chebukati had declared Ruto as president-elect after garnering 7,176,141 votes (50.49%) against Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga's 6,942,930 (48.85%)votes.

Speaking while delivering the judgment, Chief Justice Martha Koome said the full judgment would be shared after 21 days.

The Supreme Court stated that in the 2022 presidential election petition, the court had nine issues to determine whether the presidential election results would be upheld or nullified and what orders will be issued.

The Supreme Court in its ruling indicated that there were no irregularities and illegalities of such magnitude as to affect the final result of the presidential election and declared Ruto as the President-elect of Kenya.

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has also congratulated Dr. Ruto and wished him well as he takes over leadership of the country.

"I congratulate Vice President of the Republic of Kenya, William Samoei Ruto, on being affirmed by the Supreme Court of Kenya as the President-elect of the country.
