President William Ruto has returned to Kenya after his official visit to Europe, where he was the keynote speaker at the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue.
During his speech, he emphasized the importance of Africa utilizing its vast renewable energy resources to drive economic growth and reduce the continent’s carbon footprint.
He also announced that Kenya will host the first-ever Africa Climate Action Summit in Nairobi from September 4th to 6th, which aims to rally the world to tackle climate challenges faced by the least emitting continent.
Upon his return, Ruto was welcomed by several leaders, including the second in command, Rigathi Gachagua, Inspector General of the police Japhet Koome, and Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces Robert Kibochi.
Meanwhile, Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya, led his second anti-government protest while Ruto was away on his four-day trip.
However, the country also experienced some unfortunate events during Ruto’s absence.
Unknown persons invaded a parcel of land in Ruiru, which is linked to former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family, and stole flocks of sheep.
According to different sources ,the invaders arrived on Monday morning and immediately began cutting down trees and clearing the land.
The country is now eagerly anticipating whether the head of state will address the nation, especially as the opposition leader, Raila Odinga, gears up for the third anti-government protest.
Despite these developments, Ruto’s return and the upcoming climate summit are expected to be major talking points in the country’s political discourse.
