With only seven days to the general election, the Jubilee regime of president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Samoei Ruto will be coming to an end after their 10 year reign.

The Uhuruto government was first elected in 2013 and were re-elected in 2017 under the Jubilee ticket in a controversial election that was nullified by the Supreme court.

Uhuru has on several occasions discouraged Kenyans from electing his deputy William Ruto, terming him too incompetent to take over the leadership of the country.
