Uhuru signs pact with Musalia
Nairobi, Kenya: President elect Uhuru Kenyatta has committed that he is ready to seek fresh mandate from the Kenyan people if the Supreme Court doesn’t uphold his victory.
Uhuru’s spoke even as his Jubilee Alliance signed a post-election agreement with nine other political parties including UDF of Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi.
“We are ready to go back to the people and seek fresh mandate. All we are saying is that there should be peace,” Uhuru said during the signing of the pact at his home along State House Road in Nairobi.
Other political parties that signed the pact include Eugene Wamalwa’s New Ford Kenya, Kiraitu Murungi’s APK, Wavinya Ndeti’s CCU and Omingo Magara’s PDP.
Before the polls, Magara and Ndeti were allied to Raila Odinga’s Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD).
Uhuru, however, warned leaders against inciting jobless Kenyans and university students from taking to the streets to protest election results.
He said that the agreement that they have signed with the nine political parties was part of unity and reconciliation that they promised Kenyans during their campaigns.
Uhuru said that the acceptance by Musalia to work with him was a strong message to the Kenyan masses that there is no need to fight each other.
“Musalia Mudavadi who was my competitor has agreed to work with us. This should send a very strong message to the people at the grassroots that there is no reason to fight each other,” he said.
