What the sporting world says on Kenyan elections

Listen to them carefully.

Kenya Volleyball Federation’s National sports organizing secretary Ismail Chege has called upon Kenyans to be patient asserting that IEBC should be given time to do their work instead of panicking.

“Let us give IEBC time. Let’s wait for them so as to get the final results. Let there be no tension at the moment,” he told P Live.

Kenyan Premier League official GMT Ottieno, on the other hand has registered his disappointment with the pace of tallying but called for peace insisting that violence of any kind is not what sportsmen are for.

“I’m very disappointed with the turn of events because I thought Kenyans learned from the 2007-8 experience. However, I appeal for peace because that’s the spirit in sports. Without peace there are no sporting activities”

Kenya Rugby Union have also tweeted a random peace message same case with SportPesa, the company which sponsors many sporting events and federations in the country.

Round 21 matches of KPL which were set to be played over the weekend have since been postponed till Tuesday August 15 as a result.
