Just days after William Ruto was declared president-elect, it has emerged that he prophesied his presidency three decades ago.

According to longest serving Press Secretary of late president Mzee Daniel Moi, Lee Njiru, the outgoing deputy president made the prophesy at the parade square at JKIA.

It was soon after the departed former Head of State touched down from an official visit to the United States of America in 1990.

Njiru said that moments after Mzee Moi left the airport, Ruto stood at the pavilion where Moi would salute before inspecting the guard of honour and said that he would so the same too.

“He told me, Lee watch this space. One day I will inspect a guard of honour from here. I will take a salute from here as the President of Kenya. That is what crossed my mind the moment he was declared the winner by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Chairman Wafula Chebukati,” Njiru said.

Njiru stated that following his election as the president, he wants Ruto to take the salute and inspect a guard of honour from JKIA once he is sworn in.

“I want to remind the President-elect Dr Ruto that if he is sworn in he should take the salute from JKIA at the parade ground. That is what I ask him. He promised me that. His dreams have come true and he should honour his promise,” he added.

Njiru also praised Ruto for managing to clinch the top seat despite insults and humiliation, noting that the DP has taught him a lesson on overcoming challenges.

“Fate has decreed that he is my leader. I accept that wholeheartedly and I wish he will stick to his words so that there will be no political revenge. He has been insulted, vindicated and maligned but as they say, you don’t throw stones at a tree that has no fruits

“By ascending to power the President-elect has proved one thing. With focus, resilience, perseverance and consistency there is no unsurmountable hurdle. He has made history. He Has become a role model to young people. He has shown even a little-known village like Sugoi can produce a president,” he said.

In other news, constitutional lawyer Steve Ogolla has explained why outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta is yet to congratulate Ruto.

Ogolla said by congratulating Ruto, it might be interpreted as Uhuru is content with the outcome of the election.

However, the lawyer said if Uhuru speaks on Ruto’s win as the president and not the Azimio chairman it would not affect Raila Odinga’s dispute over the election results.

“He could say – at this advanced stage, the commission has made a declaration of the president-elect, I join them in congratulating him but this does not mean endorsement as finality – and create a balance, so that he doesn’t put Raila Odinga politically embarrassing situation

“But also he cannot overprotect Raila to the extent that he compromises the tranquillity and cohesion in the country,” Ogolla said.
