President Ruto Commits To Mentor Young Leaders

By Grace Gilo

President William Ruto has reiterated his dedication to mentoring young leaders.

“I want to assure young leaders of our commitment to mentor them to become better leaders in future. However, we should respect one another,” stated the President.

Speaking at Nakuru Boys High School grounds during the Akorino Annual Prayer Conference, the President told the young leaders that their political future was bright.

The Head of state said that the success of any leadership is in mentoring the youth to become better leaders.

“We like assisting other leaders because we shall be happier if we get better leaders than us. That is how we shall have a better country,” said President Ruto.

At the same time, President Ruto assured Kenyans that he would not tolerate tribal politics under his watch.

President Ruto highlighted Kenya’s role in promoting peace in conflict-ridden countries such as Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Haiti.

He urged leaders to embrace unity and desist from divisive politics.

“I want to plead with my fellow leaders not to divide Kenyans. We must unite our people for the sake of peace and development,” urged the Head of State.

The President commended the people of Nakuru for rejecting tribal politics during the previous General Election and voting for a party that advocates for national unity.

“Some leaders, who were proponents of tribal politics, came here during the last General Election campaigns and cautioned you against voting for Kenya Kwanza. But you refused to buy their tribal politics and voted for a party that propagates the politics of national unity,” he said.

President Ruto added that the construction of the Itare Dam would resume soon and that he was going to meet with the Italian Prime Minister on Friday concerning the dam.

Furthermore, the President mentioned that plans were underway for the construction of a one-gigawatt (GW) data centre in Naivasha.

The data centre, he explained, would be established in a partnership among Kenyan firm Eco Cloud, United States’ company Microsoft and G42 of the United Arab Emirates.
