President-Elect William Ruto telephoned outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta where they discussed matters of the general election and transition.
“I had a telephone conversation with my boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta. We discussed the just concluded General Election and the transition as envisaged by our democratic tradition and practice,” said Ruto
The statement by the incoming President was a demonstration of him staying true to his words following the verdict by the Supreme Court of Kenya upholding his 9th August election.

Speaking from his official residence in Karen, Ruto confirmed that at least now he will call his long-time friend President Uhuru Kenyatta who they have not spoken to in several months.
This follows the fallout between the two of them after the famous handshake between the outgoing President and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga caused rifts within the Jubilee Party.
President Uhuru went ahead and endorsed the former Prime Minister contrary to his promise of handing over power to his then Deputy President when his term comes to an end.
Despite the support from the government, Ruto triumphed beating the ODM party leader in the disputed elections.
