Roots Party Running Mate Finally Gives Her Verdict Concerning Presidential Results

The kenya general election results announced by the chairman of the independent Electoral and boundaries commission wafula Chebukati has brought several controversies across the country.

The IEBC chairman after announced the results after six days of tallying the presidential results. He declared Dr William Kipchirchir Samoei Ruto the current deputy president as the president elect of the republic of Kenya.

The presidential results announced brought several reactions from different presidential candidates. For instance, the Azimio La Umoja coalition leader Hon Raila Odinga rejected the outcome of the election claiming that they weren't transparent and credible.

On the other hand, the Agano presidential candidate Hon David Mwaure accepted the outcome of the results and congratulated the president elect HE William Ruto.

Today the Roots party running mate Hon Justina Wamae has also came out to give her verdict on the same. Through her Facebook page she Wrote, "It has taken me 4 days listening to arguments from all quotas on whether IEBC was free, fair and transparent and I can confidently say that the election was transparent because the polling station agents who are supreme in this process would have raised an alarm if the Presiding officer was up to no good. The Returning Officer in the constituency level would have been alarmed and mark you the national tallying centre had no power in determining the outcome of the 2022 Presidential election. 

So when I see some parties like Roots Party who as a member can confidently say we were disorganized in regards to agents mobilization stating that votes were stolen is simply preposterous. As a future leader, we need to stop bashing our institutions which in turn will translate to inciting the public against constitutionally mandated institutions.

To our supporters 61,969 is no mean feat, do not lose hope, what you did made a difference and building on itself will go into make a difference in future.

H.E William Ruto and H.E Rigathi Gachagua are going to be our President and Deputy President respectively and I pray that our wonderful peaceful people of Kenya will accept the verdict.

Congratulations H.E Ruto and H.E Rigathi on your victory. As the representative of the Kenyan youth I will support in any way I can to achieve a financially secure Kenya that is dignified across the globe."
