The President said they spoke at length about the wellness of Kenyan citizens and how they can try and eradicate poverty and hunger.
"Our country’s priority as we engage with the African Development Bank is to spur sustainable growth and drive social progress so that we can end poverty, tackle hunger and promote the well-being for all Kenyans."
Ruto later held talks with World Health Organisation Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

Ruto's final meeting was with the Executive Secretary of the IGAD, Workneh Gebeyehu, together with whom they discussed issues touching on regional peace and prosperity of member countries.
"We laud the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) for its dedication to a resilient and integrated Africa. Kenya pledges its support to IGAD for sustained peace and prosperity in the bloc," the President said.
