The Atheists In Kenya Society would like to congratulate H.E President-Elect William Samoei Ruto for being duly elected as President of Kenya. We would also like to thank our Supreme Court judges for safeguarding the will of the Kenyan people. The willingness of the judiciary to protect our constitution in the face of intense political pressure is a source of hope and inspiration.
We would also like to thank the IEBC, in particular Mr. Wafula Chebukati, Prof. Abdi Guliye, and Mr. Molu Boya for guaranteeing the integrity of our election against many odds.
It is our hope that President William Ruto will promote secularism and freedom of religion as specified under Articles 8 and 32 of our Constitution during his term. Atheists should never face discrimination. We will vehemently oppose any attempt to privilege religious organizations and religious beliefs in Kenya.
Both believers and atheists have important roles to play in building a democratic, pluralistic, and inclusive Kenyan society.
