Museveni has already confirmed that he will attend Ruto’s swearing-in ceremony at Kasarani stadium on September 13.
Our sources told the press that the president had been contacted by Ruto’s team to speak “as an elder on political matters in the great lakes region.”
The sources said Ruto had also personally conveyed this message in a telephone conversation after the Supreme Court upheld his election on September 5.
It is not clear whether Museveni accepted the request but sources said he will speak given his closeness with Ruto.
Should Museveni accept the request, it will be the second time in nine years he will be playing a pivotal role at the swearing ceremony of a Kenyan leader. END.
