We have no interest in whoever leads Kenya - Government

The statement comes on the back of claims that the 2016 New Patriotic Party (NPP) Campaign Manager, Peter Mac Manu, and his party planned to meddle in the elections in Kenya and to ensure a regime change.

A statement by the Information Minister, Mustapha Hamid said the decision over who is best fit to lead the East African country is a reserve of Kenyans.

“We wish to make it clear that Government of Ghana has no interest whatsoever in who emerges winner in Tuesday’s poll,” the statement read.

Peter Mac Manu, leading a team of Democratic Union of Africa International Observers to Kenya’s elections, was denied entry into the country.

The government of Ghana has since denied claims that it intended compromising the polls, saying that Mr Mac Manu was in Kenya in his own accord, and not on behalf of the State.

“The Ghanaian Constitution guarantees every citizen of Ghana the freedom to participate in political activity inside or outside of the country, within the laws of Ghana and wherever they find themselves,” the Information Minister said in the statement.

"Ghana enjoys strong diplomatic relations with Kenya and would continuously work to deepen this, as well as explore other areas of co-operation between the two countries," the statement added.
