Nandi Hills residents on Monday broke into jubilation joining other Kenyans to celebrate the 5th president of the republic of Kenya Dr. William Samoei Ruto after the Supreme Court upheld his win in the 2022 elections.
The residents who had eagerly waited for Monday’s verdict just like other Kenyans took into the town with songs of praise accompanied by dances and ululations to express their happiness as well as lauded the Supreme Court judges for their ruling terming it a ‘Solomonic judgment.’
Speaking during their celebrations in the town James Korir one of the residents lauded the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) officials who are led by the 5th president saying that as supporters they are expecting the new government to implement all that was in their manifestos.
“This town is one of the strongholds of UDA. We are proud of our president’s win. As supporters we feel that we equally won and we are optimistic that this government will serve its citizens as promised during their campaigns,” said Korir.
Dorcas Kipchirchir who represented vegetable vendors in Nandi Hills town, on her part said that God had indeed answered their prayers as they believe in the bottom up economic model.
Kipchirchir called upon the new government to strictly stick to their manifestos especially on how to improve the lives of the mama ‘mbogas’ and all those struggling to place food on the table.
“As mama ‘mbogas’ we are delighted with the ruling made by the Supreme Court today. We voted for the 5th president and we hope for the best out of his government. This is a win for all Kenyans,” she pointed out.
