Even as President Uhuru Kenyatta turns 59 years old today October 26, his Deputy William Ruto has wished him a Happy Birthday.
DP Ruto’s message comes amid the cold war and frosty political relations between the two leaders as different realignments take shape ahead of the 2022 elections.
Through his Twitter page, the second in command, while acknowledging Uhuru as his friend and boss, wished him well, asking God to grant Uhuru good health and a long life.
“Happy birthday to my friend and boss HE. Uhuru Kenyatta. May God almighty grant you good health and long life,” tweeted Ruto.

The two have been having a strained relationship due to disagreements brought about by the handshake and the BBI report set to be launched today at the Bomas of Kenya.
Ruto, who seemed isolated by Raila and Uhuru, has been charting his own way, with many analysts opining that the DP together with his brigade might be warming up to reject the report, immediately after its official launch today.
Despite this, the second in command has not officially communicated his stand on the report, instead urging Kenyans to widely read it before making informed decisions.
Ruto has on many occasions been on records warning top brass leaders against advocating for their own agenda in the report, rather to champion for issues that affect the common citizens and ‘hustlers’
Among other Tanga-tanga allied leaders who have wished the president well includes Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
Through his tweet, Murkomen wished Uhuru well, reminding him to adhere to some of the constitution’s demands, including appointing the 41 judges presented to him by the JSC.
“Happy Birthday President Uhuru Kenyatta. Today before you say anything about Constitutional rigidity and unity of the country please appoint the 41 Judges (minus one who has since passed on).Also, tell Kenyans how you will unite your Party and Government. God bless you!” stated Murkomen.
