President Uhuru Kenyatta met with IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati and discussed the October 26 repeat election.

President Kenyatta said he is ready for the elections and has no demands on IEBC, other than the electoral body meeting its obligation of conducting fresh presidential elections on October 26 as ordered by the Supreme Court.

The meeting was held at the Office of the President in Harambee House and was also attended by Deputy President William Ruto.

“We made clear that we have no demands or conditions on this subject. We have made funds available for the IEBC to do its job. Now they really should deliver,” the president said.

“We only insist that elections be held on October 26, that’s the time line set by the IEBC in terms of conditions set in the annulment of the August 8 elections,” the president added.

The Supreme Court annulled the August 8 presidential poll on 1 September, citing irregularities and illegalities.
