US congratulates elected leaders

The US secretary John Kerry congratulated Kenyans for voting peacefully on March 4 general elections.

Kerry also congratulated those elected to the offices citing that Kenyans turned up in millions to exercise their fundamental democratic rights.

“I am inspired by the overwhelming desire of Kenyans to peacefully make their voices heard, and I applaud the patience they have shown as votes were tallied.” he read the statement.

In the statement sent to the press he stated that their desire is to see the will of the Kenyan people expressed freely and fairly.

He also urged all parties and their supporters to peacefully address any disputes with Saturday’s announcement by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) through the Kenyan legal system, rather than on the streets.

“These elections are historic opportunity for the people of Kenya to come together to build a better future. Since its independence in 1963, Kenya has been one of America’s strongest and most enduring partners in Africa.  We stand with you at this historic moment and will continue to be a strong friend and ally of the Kenyan people” he stated.
