• Ruto says UDA will be mentoring young politicians to help them become better leaders.
• He is the leader of UDA and the President-elect. He will be sworn in on Tuesday.
President-elect William Ruto has said his party is ready and willing to mentor new and youthful politicians.
The UDA party leader says he has at some point been forced to advise leaders to minimize their alcohol intake.
"I know sometimes I say things that don't please people. Sometimes I call them and tell them 'Mambo ya pombe upunguze ama uwache'.
Sa zingine it looks unkind but that is what a father is supposed to do," Ruto said.
Ruto went on to give reasons for his proposed mentorship program, saying he wants the young leaders to better themselves.
"I want to tell the leaders who have been elected part of the job we have is to mentor the younger people.
"I want to assure you that we will help you to grow. We will help them understand their role and to help them be better than us. We will call you whenever we see mnapiga piga kona,"
"We want the best from you because if better leaders take over from us we will have a better country."
The Supreme Court of Kenya on Monday, 5th September 2022, upheld William Ruto's win as the fifth President of the Republic of Kenya.
Reading the verdict on Monday, Chief Justice Martha Koome said Ruto garnered 50 percent plus one vote cast.
Ruto had garnered 7.1m while Raila Odinga garnered 6.9m as declared by the IEBC.
The confirmation followed an intense 14-day process in which lawyers representing Azimio's Raila Odinga, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, and President-elect William Ruto did battle.
The Supreme Court received nine petitions, of which eight challenged Ruto's election, while one support his victory.
