Details Emerge on What International Observers Told Uhuru About 9th August Elections At State House

On Saturday at State House in Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta met with a team of election observers who updated him on their views regarding the election process.

The delegation, lead by the ex-president of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Koroma, reported that the voting process has been relatively transparent and that all observers have submitted positive comments.

In their report to President Kenyatta, the team comprised of former Presidents Domitien Ndayizeye (Burundi) and Mulatu Teshome (Ethiopia) and Ambassador Marie-Pierre Lloyd of Seychelles highlighted that the electoral system and institutions complied with the law and international best practices.

The election observers stressed that they had learned a great deal from the elections in Kenya and that they will share the positive example of genuine democracy, institutional legitimacy, and adherence to the rule of law in order to construct the "Africa we desire."

They emphasized the use of technology and respect for the Constitution and institutions during the electoral process as examples of best practices to be imitated.

The observers praised President Kenyatta and the people of Kenya for their peaceful and inclusive campaigns and hoped for a credible and peaceful outcome as well as a post-election process that will be a part of his legacy.
