Deputy president William Ruto has committed to ensuring that the upcoming August polls are peaceful as he seeks to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Ruto spoke in Omaha, Nebraska, when he was hosted by the state’s governor, Pete Ricketts, together with Second Lady Rachel Ruto and ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi, according to Ruto’s Presidential Campaign Secretariat Communications Director Hussein Mohamed.
“Dr. Ruto advanced the interests of Kenyan farmers urging Governor Ricketts to tap into the Kenyan market to meet Nebraska’s demand for quality coffee and tea,” tweeted Mohamed on Tuesday.
“The Deputy President also reiterated his commitment and guarantee, on his part, to ensure a peaceful election in August 2022, while protecting the democratic aspirations of Kenyans.”
Ricketts hosted the DP alongside, among others, Second Lady Rachel Ruto and ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi, according to Ruto’s Presidential Campaign Secretariat Communications Director Hussein Mohamed.
Together, they also held a discussion at the University of Nebraska about innovation, sustainability, and food security.
Additionally the DP is scheduled to speak at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and at the University of Arizona’s Washington Entrepreneurship Hub.
Later on, Ruto will meet with officials from the State Department and the Pentagon, as well as the US Government’s National Security Council (NSC) Advisor.
