Nobody could have foreseen how one of Kenya's closest elections in history would turn out. Now that William Ruto has been declared the election's winner, attention should turn to the following stage of building the nation.
Since everyone has witnessed how transparent this election was, people cannot complain about it. The IEBC made sure that everyone could see what was happening and have access to all the forms.
Both liberal and conservative political commentators had predicted that their respective parties would win in a landslide, but this did not occur. But since there can only be one winner, Raila Odinga ought to give up.
He has the constitutional right to appeal the Supreme Court if he feels he has been treated unfairly, notwithstanding the fact that this fight is pointless. Since the IEBC has been so careful, which we have all witnessed, it is unlikely that the Supreme Court will invalidate this election.
Starting out, let's show respect where respect is due. The IEBC did a terrific job overall, despite the fact that the election wasn't fully trouble-free. It was preferable to keep the country waiting and make the accurate statements rather than criticising them for a variety of acts, such as the agonisingly long delay before the final announcement.
