Julie Gichuru sends strong message after Supreme Court ruling

“Wacheni matusi,” Julie said after she got lambasted by Kenyans on Twitter following her comments.

“Back to the polls for fresh presidential vote #SupremeCourt Let's do this with maturity & minimal disruption.” She wrote before adding “The #SupremeCourt ruling on the 2017 presidential result is unprecedented in Africa, another first for Kenya. We are a country of firsts!”

Tweets that offended some Kenyans on Twitter who attacked her for her sentiments:

Taking to Instagram after the attacks Julie Gichuru sent out a strong message on the importance of respect and civility. “...A strong nation must be vested in unity that is built on trust, mutual respect, regard & civility, as well as respect for rights and responsibilities. The victor/victim mentality is a hugely destructive force. It is therefore critical that as we perfect our institutional integrity & uphold respect for the rule of law, we also build a culture of respect for rights and responsibilities, from leadership to government, citizenry to civil society.”

Before urging Kenyans not to resort to insults and instead ‘show our neighbours the respect we expect to be shown.’

“Finally fellow Kenyans, let's do this with a spirit of love and respect. We do this for Kenyans and Kenya, and so let us love and respect each other and our nation. Tafadhali wacheni matusi, it helps no one at all and only serves to poison our communal well. Let us show our neighbours the respect we expect to be shown. Let us laugh together, discuss issues with maturity and vote our chosen candidates with respect for each other’s choice. We don't have to agree with each other. But we can respect each other.”
