‘Naomba kazi! I’m ready to serve,’ Justina Wamae tells Ruto
Former Roots Party presidential running mate Justina Wamae has declared that she is jobless and asked President-elect Dr William Ruto for an opportunity.
Through her Twitter account, Ms Wamae said that she is ready to serve if Dr Ruto would give her an opportunity in his government.
“Justina Wamae is humbled, thank you Mr President William Ruto, and Rigathi Gachagua. The Bible says, speak the truth, my truth is naomba kazi. I’m ready to serve,” she said.
She was responding to the mention from the President-elect when he reached out to his opponents, saying that they will do good in keeping his administration in check.

Dr Ruto said that the campaign period was not a walk in the park and that he appreciates their efforts.
“A national campaign is not a walk in the park at best. I want all of you to know that your effort is acknowledged and deeply appreciated.
Waihiga Mwaure and Ruth Mucheru, George Wajackoyah and Justina Wamae, Raila Odinga and Martha Karua. May the spirit of love for country and selfless service lie long in your hearts and may the Almighty God always remember you,” Dr Ruto said.

Dr Ruto spoke during his address to the nation after the Supreme Court upheld his win in the concluded election.
He said that he will not go after a handshake to work with his opponents in the government, but rather will facilitate them in playing their role in the opposition.
Ms Wamae, was among the first people to congratulate Dr Ruto after being declared the winner by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairperson Wafula Chebukati.
Prof Wajackoyah has also congratulated Dr Ruto but said that he will work as an opposition member in ensuring that the government is delivering to Kenyans.
In a meeting held last week, Roots Party leaders agreed to drop Ms Wamae as the party deputy leader, replacing her with Vinod Ramji.
