DP Ruto receives a gift from US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Molly Phee in Washington DC.

Deputy President William Ruto met with Molly Phee, the US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, on Wednesday. Secretary Phee hosted Ruto at her Washington, DC office. The strategic alliance between Kenya and the United States, as well as the upcoming elections and the country’s other partners, were among the topics discussed during the discussion. The DP was attended by former Foreign Affairs CAS Ababu Namwamba, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, who is also a coalition member in the Kenya Kwanza alliance, Governor Anne Waiguru, MP Adan Duale, and ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi.

“He also emphasized Kenya’s role as an anchor state for peace and stability in the East and Horn of Africa region, but warned against political and economic exclusion, which he said would jeopardize the country’s revered status in the region, two issues he called crucial in the August 2022 election.” Ruto also warned that Kenya’s democracy is in jeopardy, claiming that some state institutions are attempting to sway the outcome of the August 9 election.
“We would have expected that we would be able to do this election without all the baggage of blackmail and intimidation that is going on at the moment, but unfortunately that is where we are,” Ruto said.”The Deputy President will later today visit the White House for a meeting at the National Security Council,” Ruto’s campaign Director of Communications Hussein Mohamed said in a statement.”Dr. Ruto together with his Kenya Kwanza team counterpart Musalia Mudavadi further committed to a peaceful election on their part while assuring the U.S of a steady and robust partner in the bilateral relations between the two countries,” Hussein said.
