Kenya’s President-elect William Ruto mourns the death of Queen Elizabeth II who died Thursday aged 96

Ruto described Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning British monarch who ruled for 70 years as a hardworking world leader whose leadership at the Commonwealth is greatly admired.

Below is the full statement,

“I have received news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II and I send condolences to the people of the United Kingdom.

The queen’s leadership of the Commonwealth for the past seven decades is admirable. She steered the institution’s evolution into a forum for effective multilateral engagement whose potential to drive tremendous socioeconomic progress remain incontestable and redounds to the Queen’s historic legacy.

We will miss the cordial ties she enjoyed with Kenya and may her memories continue to inspire us.

We join the Commonwealth in mourning and offer our condolences to the Royal Family and the United Kingdom.”
