Quit if not ready for election, Uhuru tells Raila

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto have dismissed the opposition coalition protests against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) terming them as a sign that they are not ready for the October 26 election.

Speaking during their Jubilee Campaigns at Mai Mahiu, Nakuru County, President Kenyatta asked the residents to vote for them during the repeat poll further challenging the National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga to quit the race if he feels unprepared instead of orchestrating protests that are not only affecting businesses and other operations in the country but also disrupting peace.

“If Raila does not want elections, he should relax. We want to have elections peacefully.   We want Kenyans to be united; we want different communities to live together peacefully.” said Kenyatta.

On his part, DP Ruto urged NASA leaders to follow the right constitutional procedure to remove the IEBC officials from office stating that none of them will be removed from office through unconstitutional means.

“If they have a problem with IEBC, let them follow due process. No one will be removed from office through protests.” Said Ruto.
