President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto sent their wishes to Muslim faithfuls during Eid-Ul-Adha celebrations on Friday.
Eid-Ul-Adha honours the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of obedience to God’s command.
“As we celebrate Eid-Ul-Adha, let us remember that in times of crisis it is personal sacrifices that ensure triumph over difficulty. Wishing you and your family a blessed Eid,” Uhuru said through a public notice.
William Ruto also sent warm wishes to Muslims celebrating this holy day.
“When we commit fully to God’s way and are ready to give everything, however precious in his cause, our sacrifice will be honoured and we shall receive immeasurable blessing. This is the eternal lesson given to us through the sacred commemoration of Eid-Ul-Adha,” he tweeted.

Ruto also congratulated Muslim faithfuls for their steadfast devotion and extended best wishes on the holy day.
“As we join our brothers and sisters, this day should encourage us to rededicate ourselves to family, community and philanthropy,” he said.
“Our integrity will be manifested when we align our industry and enterprise with duty, solidarity and compassion and the blessings of Almighty God will enable plenty to be found within our borders,” Ruto added.
On Thursday, former prime minister and ODM leader Raila Odinga also extended his wishes to Muslims.
“I wish all our Muslim brothers and sisters Eid Mubarak. May you all be blessed today and always. Stay safe as you commemorate the holiday,” he tweeted.
