#SupremeJudgement Jubilee's statement after Supreme Court verdict

  • Published:

Uhuru Kenyatta will be sworn in on Tuesday next week.

After a unanimous decision by six-judge bench Supreme Court to uphold the reelection of president Uhuru Kenyatta in the highly protracted October 26 repeat polls, Jubilee affiliated lawmakers have urged the Opposition wing to work through the established constitutional bodies to push for reforms.

Speaking shortly after the Supreme Court verdict by Chief Justice David Maraga, National Assembly majority leader and Garissa Township MP Mr Aden Duale has urged the National Super Alliance lawmakers to use parliament to effect the reforms, instead of taking their grievances to the streets.

 

“The constitution has provided a way out to unite the country. Devolution is on of them. So I urge the other side to use the parliament to shape the leadership of the country. There are many other avenues to be used,” Mr Duale told reporters outside the Supreme Court minutes after the ruling.

A push message through the Uhuru Kenyatta led Jubilee party twitter account on Monday read: “Petition against the election of H.E uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto has been dismissed at the supreme court by a unanimous decision.”

It adds: “Tukutane Karasani – Let's meet at Kasarani on November 28.”

 

Mr Kenyatta is therefore cleared for swearing-in  on November 28, being the second  Tuesday after the final ruling by the Supreme Court, as required by law.
