Deputy President William Ruto has sent a congratulations message to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris following their election as US President and Vice President respectively.
DP Ruto through a brief message posted on his Twitter page on Sunday said Biden and Harris’ victory in the 2020 US presidential election confirms “our faith in democracy and the supremacy of the people.”
“Congratulations Joe Biden /Kamala Harris for making history. The highest popular vote ever & the first woman vice President,” Ruto noted.
“Your win confirms our faith in democracy and the supremacy of the people. The global community who believe in democracy celebrate and share in your success.”
Ruto who is seeking to succeed President Kenyatta in 2022 has previously dismissed the existence of the so-called “deep state”, a powerful group of shadowy individuals that allegedly determine the outcome of elections who rules the country.
But even if it exists, DP Ruto maintains nothing can stop him from ascending to power with the masses and God on his side.
“We are ready and waiting for that ‘Deep State’ and system that they are talking about. We will go head-on because we have nothing to fear,” he said.
“Threats and intimidations will not deter my quest for the top seat. I am ready to face the ‘deep state.’ They have the deep state and the system, we have God and wananchi.”
