Former Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua has showered praises on President William Ruto following his maiden speech at the United Nations General Assembly.
Ruto address the 77th UN General Assembly on Wednesday night, and his speech has widely been praised.
During the speech, the president highlighted several local and foreign policies that his administration intends to pursue.
Having pegged his presidential campaigns on the bottom-up economic agenda, the Head of State did not fail to mention his hustlers’ narrative in the speech.
“It is time to bolster the resilience of our nations to mainstream these hustlers through deliberate strategies and efforts for economic inclusion by building back better from bottom-up,” he noted in part of the speech.
With Kenyans still debating on how Ruto performed at his first international address, Mutua, like many of the Kenya Kwanza-allied politicians says he was brilliant.
“Yesterday, President @WilliamsRuto outlined our foreign policy laced with our domestic agenda. The speech & delivery were brilliant,” noted the former governor who is part of the delegation that accompanied the President on the US tour.
According to the Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader, with Ruto’s speech, the whole world now knows that Kenya has a sharp, eloquent and focused leader.
“The world now knows that H.E. Ruto is a sharp, eloquent & focused leader who means well. Later, we walked with him to a meeting with Jamaican PM,” he said while sharing several photos of the President addressing the UN General Assembly and later walking on the streets of New York.
After delivering the speech at UN General Assembly, the president later held a meeting with Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
In a tweet, the head of state said his administration looks forward to working with Jamaica in among other tourism and sports sectors.
“Kenya looks forward to partnering and working with Jamaica in strategic areas of mutual interest such as tourism and sports for the economic development of the two countries. During a meeting with Prime Minister of Jamaica @AndrewHolnessJM in New York, United States,” Ruto tweeted.
