We are ready for the rematch, Uhuru tells Raila

A defiant President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday said he disagreed with the Supreme Court ruling that nullified his re-election but urged Kenyans to remain peaceful.

In his address after the verdict, the President said he is ready for the elections urging other candidates to get ready as well while also adding that the decision of 45 million Kenyans cannot be annulled by six people in reference to the Supreme Court judges.

“I personally disagree with the ruling that has been made today but I respect it as much as I disagree with it. I respect it, I disagree with it because as I have said, millions of people queued made their choice and six people have decided that they will go against the will of the people,” President Kenyatta said.

The President at the same time emphasized on peace urging Kenyans to be kind with one another irrespective of their political affiliation in his address to the nation from State House on Friday afternoon.

“The fault is not yours, your neighbour remains your neighbour and that is the person that is most important to you. We are ready to go back again to the people, with the same agenda that we delivered to the people,” he said.

The president was flanked by his deputy William Ruto.
