President-elect William Ruto on Wednesday night appeared on CNN in a pre-recorded interview. The current Deputy President sat down with Christiane Amanpour to discuss among other things his election to the top seat in the country.  Asked whether President Uhuru Kenyatta has congratulated him, Ruto said that had not happened, but reiterated that his support for Uhuru in 2013 and 2017 was not on condition of reciprocal support in 2022. “Unfortunately, President Kenyatta has not seen it fit to congratulate me,” he said. “Maybe he’s a bit disillusioned or maybe he’s unhappy that I defeated his candidate, but that is the nature of politics.”
