President Uhuru Met With Election Observers At Statehouse, Nairobi

Today at the Statehouse: Uhuru, Rachael Omamo, and observers

Today, President Uhuru Kenyatta welcomed a group of election monitors to his statehouse residence as a courtesy call. The crew is quite pleased with how the nation is handling the situation. Rachael Omamo, the cabinet secretary in charge of foreign relations, was also present.

The statehouse statement said, in part: "At State House in Nairobi on Saturday, President Uhuru Kenyatta received a group of election observers who gave him a report on their findings about the voting process. The delegation, chaired by former president of Sierra Leone Ernest Bai Koroma, claimed that all of the observers gave favorable assessments of the election and that it had been fairly transparent."

The team, which also included former presidents of Burundi and Ethiopia, Domitien Ndayizeye and Mulatu Teshome, as well as Seychelles Ambassador Marie-Pierre Lloyd, noted that the election system and institutions complied with international best practices and legal requirements in their memo to President Kenyatta.
