Kenya’s Head of State President Uhuru Kenyatta turned 60 years old today on Tuesday, October 26, 2021.
On this date, four years ago, a section of Kenyans took to Twitter to say their birthday gift to the President would be re-electing him for a second five-year term.
Kenyans were taking to the polls for a repeat presidential election after former Chief Justice David Maraga-led team at the Supreme Court nullified the presidential election results, which had placed Uhuru ahead of Raila Odinga by 1.4 million votes.
The repeat election would see President Kenyatta declared the winner after getting 7.48 million votes. Despite not running, Raila came second with 73,228 votes.
As Uhuru turns 60 today, six days after Ruto said the Head of State would be remembered for a solid legacy transcending infrastructural and energy development, the DP is at it again, this time praying that “God blesses” the President.
Mwingi West MP Charles Nguna, on his official Twitter page, said: “I join fellow Kenyans in wishing President Uhuru Kenyatta a very belated happy 60th birthday. May you live long, sir.”
