Acceptance Speech by Deputy President Elect, William Ruto
I want to thank all the great people of Kenya for the mandate they havegraciously bestowed on the Jubilee Coalition by electing my brother UhuruKenyatta to be President, and I Deputy President. I salute every citizen whopeacefully and robustly exercised their right of political participation andcontested an election, or voted. Regardless of who you elected, I recognise andsalute your commitment to democracy and fair and transparent politicalcompetition. You also voted for the biggest candidate and winner in this election:a peaceful and united Kenya. If you voted for us, or for our competitors you didwell, lent your voice to the task of moving forward, and exemplified a finepatriotic undertaking to watch over your country's leadership. No words canreally express the love and gratitude I feel towards the great people of thisbeautiful country, but a heartfelt ASANTE SANA will do.My wife; it has been quite a journey, and the Lord has been faithful. You havebeen a true pillar of strength, brilliant companion and constant inspiration. I knowthat you did not sign up for some of the responsibility that has fallen upon youalong the way, but I am thankful that you have been courageous and faithfulabout it. With your support, I am stronger, and for this, I thank you with all myheart.
Our campaign teams, volunteers and supporters: you have been marvellousbeyond words. You constitute the Digital Brigade that has won a gruellingcampaign and the hearts of Kenyans. I know that we will enlist more believers,mobilisers and servants of the people to defeat poverty and underdevelopment,and transform Kenya. I am proud to be associated with each one of you. Acceptour sincere gratitude. God bless you.I also salute our worthy competitors in this exciting political contest: my brothersHon Raila Odinga, Musalia Mudavadi, Peter Kenneth, Mohamed Dida, Paul Muiteand my dear sister Martha Karua as well as their running mates. This contest wastough, and you presented the rigour, commitment and vigilance required toensure that the voice of Kenyans is heard, and that true democracy is entrenchedin our national culture. I do not doubt your patriotism and commitment to offerleadership. That is why we reach out with open arms, so that we unite inbrotherhood to work together wheresoever possible, to show the people of Kenya that the contest was not about losing; for each of us is worthy, and each of us can be victorious in meaningful ways. To use a popular expression, please letus keep in touch.The Jubilee Coalition's manifesto has received the people's stamp of approval. Wehave committed ourselves to work tirelessly to unite Kenyans, accelerateeconomic growth, improve livelihoods, secure the country and provide excellentinfrastructure. We have made specific pledges to the youth, the women, the old,the children and many sectors of our national life. It is our manifest intention to
execute that manifesto in full. We wish to keep our word. Therefore, as we statedbefore, we shall work hard. We shall rise early and work hard all day, every day,until every pledge is discharged, and every promise kept.The process of transforming Kenya has began in earnest. Our Parliament, both theSenate and National Assembly, has the youngest legislators in Kenya's history,many of who are sponsored by the Jubilee Coalition. Already, we havetransformed how Kenyan perceive leaders and leadership. The relationshipbetween the mwananchi and the politician has been elevated to a new level of synergy, consensus and servant leadership. This is the beginning of the marchtowards the Kenya we want for ourselves, and our children.The work of building this nation will require conscientious management of national resources. Implicitly, therefore, the Jubilee government must fightcorruption and entrench managerial best practices in the full recognition of thefact that by law and in fact, the mandate bestowed in this election is also a publictrust. Success in redeeming our pledge will depend in managing the relationshipsthat our country's well-being depends on in a forward-looking, pragmatic,respectful way that prioritises national needs and the need to adjust traditionalrelationships accordingly. The Jubilee Coalition aspires to be truthful, faithful,diligent, vigilant and obedient servants of the people of Kenya. Our democracyhas grown into a stable and consistent national culture. We must cherish andcelebrate it always. The freedom to imagine, think and speak is the power thatunlocks our imaginative, creative and innovative energies. This is the essence, not
