resident-elect, Republic of Kenya, William Ruto has taken to Twitter to quote a popular Bible verse after winning the Kenyan presidential election.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Ruto was declared the winner of the Kenyan presidential election by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) after 6 days of collating results.
“In that day you will say: “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.” — Isaiah 12:4,” Ruto tweeted.

TNG reports Ruto is the incumbent Deputy President of Kenya until winning the election. He defeated opposition leader, Raila Odinga backed by Uhuru Kenyatta in the Kenyan presidential election.
In announcing the election results, IEBC Chair, Wafula Chebukati declared that Ruto won the election, polling 50.49 per cent of the total votes cast. Odinga, on the other hand, polled 48.85 per cent of the votes.
However, the credibility of the election results has been called to question. Four IEBC Commissioners led by Vice Chair of the Commission, Juliana Cherera have disowned the results, saying tallying was opaque.
