Supreme Court judges adept, let them do their work – Ruto
We should not undermine our democratic process that we showed the world on August 8 by engaging in acts of lawlessness, Deputy President urges Kenyans
Deputy President William Ruto has urged Kenyans, irrespective of their political affiliation, to allow the Supreme Court to do its work without intimidation and coercion.
He yesterday said there is no need to try to exert pressure on the judges, whom he described as competent individuals who are up to the task.
Ruto thanked Kenyans for exercising their democratic right to elect leaders of their choice in a peaceful manner during the General Election.
He urged them to remain united and peaceful as the country awaits for the Supreme Court’s ruling on the presidential results.
Addressing Kiborokwa AIC faithful in Uasin Gishu county, Ruto said the manner in which Kenyans voted on August 8 shows Kenya is progressing democratically.
“I wish to ask each one of us to desist from activities that can disrupt our peaceful coexistence and undermine our democratic progress,” he said.
Ruto said leaders should be ready to accept and respect the decision of the court and the will of the people, adding voters have done their part.
“We should not undermine our democratic process that we showed the world on August 8 by engaging in acts of lawlessness,” he said.
Ruto, who was accompanied by MPs Oscar Sudi (Kapseret) and Caleb Kositany (Soy), commended Kenyans for supporting the Jubilee Party “because of its focus on development and improvement of people’s lives”.
He asked Jubilee leaders to put aside issues to do with the last election and implement the party’s manifesto.
“Our focus as Jubilee is to initiate development projects that have direct impact on the lives of the people,” Ruto said.
