President William Ruto made changes to the order of presidential statues that were used during his predecessor, Uhuru Kenyatta’s reign.
From photos that were shared by State House after the Jamhuri Day celebrations on Monday, December 12, Kenyans.co.ke noted that Ruto reorganised the statues in order of the assumption of office from independence in 1963 to 2017 – from founding president Jomo Kenyatta all the way to Uhuru.
During Uhuru’s time, the former Head of State used to place his sculpture next to his father’s.

Additionally, since his inception to office, Ruto has continued to make changes in his office as he settles into his new residence.
Other changes noticed are the type of seats used by the Head of State to host visitors for various engagements.
While Uhuru settled for armchairs, Ruto, on the other hand, prefers wing chairs.
The president, however, maintained several interior decors such as cream and patterned seat covers as well as cream curtains.

The cream colour is universal and has been used by international leaders such as Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
The colour is neutral and symbolises seriousness and reliability.
Considered a colour of openness and comfort, cream is regarded as a must-have in many people’s living rooms.
