Government's message to Kenyans after elections

The government spoke as results continued to be tallied and verified by the IEBC.

In a letter sent to all principal secretaries, the Head of Civil Service and Chief of Staff Joseph Kinyua directed the principal secretaries to forward all names of all those who had reported to work in the government's various departments and ministries.

At the same time, the Cabinet Secretary of Public Service Sicily Kariuki asked all Kenyans to go back to work immediately.

"It is appreciated that the voting process is now complete. Public servants are therefore called upon to ensure they are available in their duty stations to offer requisite services to the public," the CS stated.

Most of Kenyans had travelled to their rural areas while others stayed away from their respective places of work following fears of an outbreak of violence after Tuesday's polls.

On Wednesday, Acting Cabinet Secretary for Interior Fred Matiangi also urged Kenyans to resume work and await the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to complete their tallies.

“Now that we have voted it is only fair and responsible for us as Kenyans to let the IEBC to continue with the process until its logical conclusion,” said Matiangi.
