President Uhuru Kenyatta has called on Kenyans to continue with their daily transactions even as the Supreme Court hears Presidential petition filed by National Super Alliance (NASA).
“The Judgment will be made and whatever the outcome you should continue peaceful co-existence. It doesn’t matter the outcome, Kenya will still be here. Love one another and live together as brothers,” said President Kenyatta.
NASA leader Raila Odinga on Wednesday said he will discredit president Uhuru Kenyatta's declaration by IEBC as president elect in the country's highest judicial court.
While on a tour to Wakulima market in Nairobi on Wednesday, Uhuru, who was accompanied by Nairobi governor-elect Mike Sonko urged Kenyans to maintain peace and co-exist with each other to move Kenya forward.
“Leave us to sort our issues as leaders. Politics should not make you fight. When this market burns down it will not affect one community but all of you,” said the President.
“I have seen all Kenyans doing business here. In this market there are Kambas, Merus, Luos, Kikuyus and all Kenyan communities. Please continue living together peacefully. Be your brothers keeper,” he added.
Nairobi governor-elect Mike Sonko promised traders that he will improve services to Nairobi residents saying once sworn in, and will start by reducing license fees for small-scale traders.
“You should continue with your daily activities as residents of Kibra and traders here at Kenyatta Market just as you have been doing before and after the General Election,” said Sonko.
“Leave us as leaders to tackle our political battles but don’t allow any person to incite you into violence. We have seen those who allowed themselves to be incited losing lives while those who incited them continue enjoying themselves,” he said.
“ I thank you for voting my friend Sonko, I have asked him to ensure he changes the image of this city. He will sink a bore hole here to ensure constant water services to the traders in this market,” said President Kenyatta.
