President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday afternoon hit the campaign trail just hours after the Supreme Court invalidated his election win and called for fresh polls in 60 days’ time.

Uhuru hits the campaign trail hours after the Supreme Court nullified the Aug. 8 presidential vote
His first visit took him to Burma market, Nairobi where he, alongside other Jubilee leaders, urged residents to maintain peace and shun tribalism as Kenya should remain united.
Seeing that he has already hit the road running with the campaigns, the Head-of-State on Saturday announced that he would tour three other areas.
They include Kiambu, Narok and Nakuru counties where he plans on meeting people at their homes, markets and towns.
Even as Uhuru kicks-off his campaigns, he has since differed with the Supreme Court’s decision to nullify the results saying that “a six bench judge cannot subvert the will of millions of Kenyans.”
“[Chief Justice] Maraga and his thugs have decided to cancel the election. Now I am no longer the president-elect. I am the serving president… Maraga should know that he is now dealing with the serving president,” he told his supporters at Burma market.
His scathing attack on the Chief Justice did not stop there as he promised to ‘fix’ the Supreme Court should he win the elections in November.
“We shall revisit this thing. We clearly have a problem. Who even elected you? Were you? We have a problem and we must fix it,” said Uhuru while addressing Jubilee Governors and MCA’s at State House on Saturday.
Even then, he thanked Kenyans for voting overwhelmingly for the Jubilee Party and urged them to uphold peace as the country prepares to go for a second round of presidential election.
