We are now in the final moments of 2020, a year in which our normalcy was shattered, our hearts broken, our strength tested and our faith tried, but also the year we learnt the power of hope, solidarity, and the tremendous resilience inside each of us. In 2020, our vision has been trained to seek opportunity in the chaos, to see light in the dark.
It is my hope and prayer that, with the lessons we have learnt and our now sharpened capabilities, the worst is well behind us.
Let us therefore look forward to a year of rebuilding and restoration; a year when we seize more chances and make up for everything we lost.
Together, let us work hard and do our best to define the new year as our moment of rebirth, a time to shed our old ways, adjust our plans, align our priorities and embrace new possibilities in making our lives, our communities and our nation more prosperous, secure and joyful than ever before.
With courage, faith, hope and love, let us enter the New Year, marching boldly towards a blessed destiny, in the name of Almighty God our creator and protector.
Happy New Year.
Dr. William Samoei Ruto
Deputy President, Republic of Kenya
