President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday wasted no time and went back to the campaign trail hours after the nullification of his re-election by the Supreme Court.
Accompanied by Deputy President William Ruto, Uhuru addressed a rally at Kamukunji’s Burma Market on Friday evening where he called on Kenyans to come out and take part in a fresh election.
Speaking to Burma market traders, the President pledged to have the market refurbished beginning next week.
The Head of State threw jabs at the Supreme Court Judges who ruled in favor of Raila Odinga in the presidential petition earlier in the day.
"I am no longer president-in-waiting. I am now firmly in power. Maraga is now dealing with a seating president," he said
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko, who both also accompanied the president, claimed the four judges had been bribed into overturning the will of the people.
Majority leader in the National Assembly Aden Duale said that Jubilee will beat Nasa with an even bigger margin.
The President thanked Kenyans for ensuring that his party carried the day and asked Kenyans to maintain peace.
A fresh election must be held within 60 days, the Supreme Court ordered in the ruling on Friday.
