Clin­ton ac­cepted poll re­sults, let us learn from her

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

There has been a lot of neg­a­tive re­ac­tion worldwide fol­low­ing the elec­tion of Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump. The suc­cess of any po­lit­i­cal as­pi­rant lies within the de­ci­sion of the vot­ers. Amer­i­cans made their de­ci­sion. Al­though Hil­lary Clin­ton lost the elec­toral col­lege vote to Trump, no mat­ter how painful it was, she ac­cepted and urged the Amer­i­can peo­ple to give him a chance to lead. Con­se­quently, Kenyans should fol­low her at­ti­tude by not tak­ing ad­van­tage of any neg­a­tive out­come of elec­tions to start vi­o­lence.
