We are remaining with only 38 days before we go into August General election. However, many politicians have raised concerns over the credibility of the August General elections. But now details of President Uhuru Kenyatta's call with US President Joe Biden's top aide on the upcoming August 9 polls have emerged, showing their strong stand over the August polls.
The statement released by the US Department of State, revealed that President Uhuru Kenyatta had received a call from Antony Blinken, who is the Secretary of State, who has expressed Biden's stand on the Kenya's elections. During the call, Mr Blinken retaliated that it was important for the August Election to be conducted in a free and fair manner around all elective positions.
"The Secretary knows the importance of free and fair elections in Kenya that are peaceful and reflect the will of the Kenyan Citizens," part of the statement read.
Amid concerns over the integrity of the Election by Dp William Ruto, US have also promised Kenya that it will help the government to deal with the high cost of living that has been caused by the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.
Blinken also engaged on regional issues and how US intends to support African countries suffering from food insecurity that escalated from the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. It also encouraged Uhuru's active role in bringing peace in War-torn Democratic Republic Of Congo after hosting high-level security meetings at State House, Nairobi.
