Luo Council of Elders and Luo professionals have congratulated President–elect Uhuru Kenyatta for winning the last Monday’s poll.
In a statement read by Party of Action (POA) party leader Minister Raphael Tuju, the elders who had gathered at a Nairobi hotel, said they have confidence that Uhuru Kenyatta will deliver the country from dogmas of corruption and tribalism which have ruined the country for the past 50 years.
Tuju said Kenyans have spoken and any leader (referring to Raila), who is challenging the outcome, must be a leader who is obsessed with leadership which Kenyans have denied him chance.
“Kenyans spoke last Monday in a free and fair poll. In any election there must be a winner and a loser, Kenyans have decided to move forward,” Tuju said.
He also thanked the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for conducting a free and fair election, thanking the officials for the job well done.
Among those who attended the meeting is former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s adviser Miguna Miguna.
