Section of Kenyans Hit Out at Julius Malema And EFF After Wading Into Kenya's Election Outcome

A section of Kenyans has hit out at South African opposition leader Julius Malema following his comments on the recently concluded presidential poll.

In a statement through his EFF Party, Malema congratulated the President-Elect of Kenya, William Ruto. Additionally, the declaration of the results signals yet another milestone in the advancement of democratic principles in Africa, according to Malema and his EFF.

The EFF further called on Raila Odinga to accept the results of the elections. However, perhaps what irked a section of Kenyans were the assertions by the EFF that in Kenya, inter-tribal violence by losers in the national elections has become the hallmark of polls.

As a result, some Kenyans were quick to call out the EFF for their ignorance on matters of Kenyan politics.

According to Bingwa, the Malema-led EFF seems to be out of touch with Kenyan political progress and the state of affairs, going by their statement. “You can not simply take a position on such a delicate matter as this one,” he advised EFF.

Ainea Regan claims Malema does not speak for Kenyans since he isn't a Kenyan and therefore can't comprehend Kenyan politics. He must allow Kenyans to chart their political course without meddling. “Kenyans do not meddle in SA politics,” he added.

To Dr Nyorita, Malema should stay in his lane and let Kenyans deal with their issues; his opinion is unsolicited and baseless. “We live in our own country daily and know its woes,” he offered.

According to Charles Mwanda, upholding the law is the best way to safeguard democracy. Elections are a process, not an event, Mwanda added. The Supreme Court will invalidate the results if the process was flawed. “Wise men don't comment on issues that they are not well-informed about,” he counselled Malema.
