Obama’s Strong Message to Uhuru & Raila

Obama's last minute message to Uhuru & Raila

Obama implored the two leaders to ensure that peace and unity prevail in the country.

“This election is one more milestone for Kenya, and I urge President Kenyatta, Mr. Odinga, and all Kenyans to act with respect for the proverb: “We have not inherited this land from our forebears, we have borrowed it from our children.” The choices you make in the coming days can either set Kenya back or bring it together,” he said.

The former Head of State noted that Kenya had made great strides and it would be disastrous to destroy the progress during the General Election.

“I urge Kenyans leaders to reject violence and incitement; respect the will of the people, urge security forces to act professionally and neutrally; and work together no matter the outcome,” Obama said.
