Deputy President William Ruto and his wife Rachael Ruto have today sent a special message to all Kenyans on Christmas eve.
While delivering their Christmas and New Year message to Kenyans earlier on, the Rutos acknowledged that the year 2020 has been a year of many lessons.
“Fellow Kenyans, 2020 has been a unique time in our lives with many lessons. The biggest lesson of 2020 is that no one regardless of rank or status is invincible,” DP Ruto stated.
“Indeed we are all vulnerable. We have learned that our lives are so intertwined. Our interests united in webs of mutuality. During this Christmas we should remember those more in need than ourselves and perform the godly duty of extending solidarity and compassion their way,” Rachel said.
Ruto thanked all health workers for their tremendous efforts that they made in the fight against covid-19.
“Against the backdrop of a ravaging Covid-19 pandemic, let us especially remember with gratitude our frontline health workers who every day go beyond the call of their vocation and who have shown phenomenal selflessness in the face of unprecedented tragedy.
“It is our duty to let them know that we appreciate their work, their sacrifice and that we stand with them, supporting them and praying for them every day,” DP Ruto said.
Rachel Ruto also urged Kenyans to pray for the families who were affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
“We pray for the quick healing of the afflicted and continued protection for all our brothers and sisters everywhere,” Rachel stated.
The second in command further urged Kenyans to love one another and work together in building the Nation as he wished Kenyans a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
“Let us continue caring and loving our families, our friends, and neighbors. Let us carry on with the work of Nation-building in our various pursuits,” DP Ruto concluded as he wished the country a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.
