President Uhuru Kenyatta has said the will of Kenyans was undermined by the ruling made by the Supreme court judges, nullifying his win in the Presidential polls. During his address to the nation at State House, Nairobi, the President criticized the Supreme Court’s decision, “The will of the people of Kenya was subverted by our courts. The Supreme Court owes Kenyans an explanation of how such a monstrous injustice could’ve taken place,” he said, “Not only did the judgment rob the Kenyan people of their democratic right but it also now has the potential to throw the country into judicial chaos.”
He said the decision to nullify the win was taken without sufficient study of evidence provided to the court, saying it opposed the sovereign right Kenyans have to elect their leaders. “The Supreme Court said due to time constraints they hadn’t gone through all files but promised to give a detailed judgment in 21 days,” said the President, “How a decision of such magnitude was made without examination of such crucial documents is incredibly startling.”
However, he said he will comply with the judgment given, saying that Kenyans’ rights are non-negotiable and that the will of the people must prevail. He affirmed that the security of the nation is stable and that all candidates in schools who are preparing for the national exams won’t be affected, “I have instructed security agencies to ensure they remain on alert and focused on providing security for Kenyans. To the 1.6 million children who have worked hard to prepare for exams, I assure you that arrangements are in place to ensure the exams aren’t disrupted by the turn of events,” he said.
