“Individual Kenyans, With the consistent choice of the Supreme Court of Kenya, our extended, thrilling and extended political race has reached a conclusion.

Supreme Court

My kindred official applicants and I made our separate cases before Kenyans, and submitted ourselves to their sovereign choice at the voting form. After the consequence of the vote was proclaimed, it was taken up under the steady gaze of the Supreme Court for investigation to ensure, unquestionably, that the desire of individuals had won.

The court returned its decision and I invite it with enormous lowliness. I recognize the appointed authorities of the Supreme Court, who have played out their obligation with most extreme loyalty to the Constitution.

They paid attention to all gatherings, thought about every one of the issues, applied the law and showed their learning, fair-mindedness and nationalism. Their amazing skill has raised the height of the Judiciary, upgraded the spot of the request cycle in legitimizing political race results as the genuine impression of individuals’ choice.

They have managed the cost of the country an amazing chance to reflect, discussion and deal with the ramifications of the last political race. I don’t underestimate this and I thank the Judiciary by and large, and the Supreme Court specifically, for remaining solid as the sparkling guide of constitutionalism and law and order, even in the most overwhelming of conditions.

The Supreme Court investigated, inspected, took apart and tried the statement of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) against the elevated requirement laid out by the Constitution.

The choice justifies the commission’s work to go hard and fast and convey a political race that surpassed public assumptions and completely met the protected limit of a solid, straightforward, free, fair and responsible political decision.

I, in this manner, recognize the commission for their respectable accomplishment, at enormous and unfortunate expense, to serve individuals of Kenya by guaranteeing that their sovereign will is maintained. This has caused Kenyans to see the value in the fair closed lawful cycle.

A large number of our allies were a little troubled about the postponement, and some could have been enticed to credit dishonesty in the solicitors whom they saw to have been exploiting the law to disappoint their desires communicated through the polling form.

A great deal of this nervousness is the consequence of well established doubt of public foundations, particularly when political contestation is involved.

The Constitution of Kenya 2010 has done a ton to make solace in establishments and law and order, and we keep on gaining empowering headway on the way towards turning into a higher-trust society standing completely on its constitution.

It was, accordingly, entirely real for the solicitors to go under the watchful eye of the Supreme Court to have their inquiries responded to, questions alleviated and fears mollified.

By practicing their protected right to lay out reality, the solicitors tried the outcome and engraved upon it the most noteworthy stamp of legal, legitimate and established endorsement. Our electing and legal foundations have won, and the Constitution has advocated for itself and won.

My regarded rivals currently have a solid premise on which to consider the result, we are justified by the decision of individuals of Kenya.

The Court’s choice finishes the circle of institutional stewards of law and order, dig in our constitution and express the sovereign will of individuals, who have explained themselves articulately straightforwardly, and through their protected establishments. I praise every one of the devoted Kenyans who introduced themselves as official up-and-comers.

It’s anything but a simple choice, and a public mission is definitely not a stroll in the park in ideal circumstances. I believe every one of you should realize that your work is recognized and profoundly appreciated.

Waihiga Mwaure and Ruth Mucheru, George Wajackoyah and Justina Wamae, Hon. Raila Odinga and Hon. Martha Karua, may the soul of adoration for country and benevolent help lie long in your souls, and may Almighty God generally recall you.

Cutthroat electing governmental issues can make, and has made our legislative issues a field absolutely without effortlessness. This fills the existence of political up-and-comers with depression, stress and a misrepresented sense that the stakes are sink or swim, and races, accordingly, incomprehensibly important issues.

It harms political rivalry , annihilating the brandishing soul which joins champs and failures, by empowering them to get to the beauty to characterize their relationship as far as what they share, and not which partitions them.

A vote based system is supposed to join a group, fortify their general public and work on its organizations and should not turn into a bitter, unfortunate and frantically venture.

We offered elective dreams and missions, and submitted to the sovereign choice of the residents of Kenya. We are contenders, as opposed to foes. We competed to join together and reinforce Kenya, not to partition and debilitate it. I, thusly, believe every one of my rivals to be my commendable countrymen.

Kenyans are joined in the journey for a superior society that is kinder to its youngsters, gentler on the defenseless, deferential of their freedoms and focused on serving them. The people who decided in favor of me, as well as the people who decided in favor of my rivals, need exactly the same thing for them and for their youngsters.

I honor this desire and am resolved to get up ahead of schedule, really buckle down the entire day, consistently, to acknowledge it. I have promised to make Kenya a country for everybody: my organization will do equity to all, paying little mind to societal position, religion, nationality, orientation, whether you casted a ballot or whom you decided in favor of.

I, hence, stretch out a hand of fellowship to every one of my rivals, and to every one of their allies. We are not adversaries; we are Kenyans. Allow us to join to make Kenya a country everybody will be pleased to call home.

My organization will perceive in full the now settled custom of respecting our chiefs who have served this country and will not, in any way, slow down their honors and different privileges in retirement.

They are worshipped elderly folks of our country who merit regard consistently. It is presently time for us to get ready for the day when we take up the pivotal obligation to serve Kenyans.

Allow all of us to ponder our commitment and anticipate building this country together, to accomplish the magnificence of Kenya, express its legacy and wonder and fill each Kenyan heart with thanksgiving.

At last, it is pivotal to bring up that the legend of our mission is mother mboga and bodaboda. The legend of the political race is Mr Wafula Chebukati and the (IEBC). The legend of our vote based system, law and order and constitutionalism is our Judiciary.”
