Jubilee hits the road running with IEBC yet to set new poll date
President Uhuru Kenyatta speaks to resident of Nakuru County in his first re-election campaign on Saturday, September 2 2017.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto embarked on a campaign trail with series of meetings and rallies in Nairobi, Nakuru and Narok Counties, with the Head of State and his team exuding confidence that they won the annulled August 8 election, faulting the judgment by the Supreme Court as unpopular.

The Jubilee brigade is already hitting the ground running, vowing to overturn the Supreme Court ruling through the fresh-ordered ballot.

“The courts have thrown us back to elections and we, Jubilee, always start our campaign in Nakuru County. We are continuing to preach our intentions and agenda to you again,” said President Kenyatta on Saturday, September 2.

On his part, the DP said that Jubilee cannot wait for the elections to prove to the whole world that they were the choice of people.

“What we want is for the IEBC to settle on a date when we go back to the polls so that we prove to the whole world that Kenyans chose us and no one can go against the will of the people,” said DP Ruto.

However, the Jubilee brigade insisted that the current-constituted electoral commission will conduct the new elections, contrary to the view of opposition leaders who feel IEBC as at now cannot be trusted to conduct a free, fair and credible election.

Nakuru Senator, Susan Kihika, called upon the electorates in the county to turn up in high numbers to confirm the re-election of President Kenyatta and his Deputy.
