Outgoing Deputy President William Ruto has broken his silence on matters regarding the general elections that was conducted on Tuesday August 9.

Taking to his Twitter account, Ruto congratulated all those who won the hotly contested elections and particularly women who won various seats.

“Congratulations to all election winners. In particular, we celebrate the many women who have broken barriers to climb the political ladder. Best wishes as you embark on your new responsibilities. Hustlers are counting on you,” the presidential hopeful said.

It has been five days since Kenyans lined up in polling centers to elect a new set of leaders that will lead the country to 2027.

Kenyans are still waiting patiently for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati to announce who emerged victorious in the presidential race especially between Ruto and Azimio-OKA flag bearer Raila Odinga, now that the other candidates, Waihiga Mwaure and George Wajackoya were trailing according to the provisional results.

Currently, the electoral Commission is engaging in verifying the presidential results from each of the constituencies across the country.

Provisional results earlier indicated that Raila and Ruto were following each other closely and none of them had met the 50+1% requirement of the total votes cast for one to be declared a winner.
