BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,3RD SEPT 2017-Jubilee leaders have insist that they will still win the second round of election slated for around 1st November 2017 despite the supreme court ruling. The leaders who took their campaigns to Kiambu County Sunday said they are not moved by the ruling.
Led by Deputy President William Ruto, Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka and Governor Ferdinand Waititu (Kiambu) the leaders said their move to disagree with the Supreme Court ruling that nullified the August 8 presidential elections does not necessarily mean that they lack respect for the Court.
Addressing wananchi in Thika town after attending the Sunday sermon at the St Andrews Anglican Church, Ruto said it is unfair that the court could overturn the decision of 15million Kenyans who elected leaders of their choice on August 8.
“15 million Kenyans woke up early to vote and there is no dispute with the votes President Uhuru Kenyatta got. But it is unfair for the court to execute, orchestrate and do a coup to overturn the verdict of millions of Kenyans,” Ruto said.
He added: “As Jubilee, we are not going to look for brokers and networks around the courts.”
“As we comply with the Supreme Court ruling, no one should also try to cow us to go to silence because it is our right to engage in constructive criticism,” said Kindiki.
Others presdent were MPs Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet), Kithure Kindiki (Tharaka Nithi), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Alice Wahome (Kandara), Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East) and Kimani Ichungwa (Kikuyu).
Others were Kanini Kega (Kieni), Francis Waititu (Juja), Jude Jomo (Kiambu Town), Kimani Wamatangi (Kiambu) and Gathoni Wamuchomba (Kiambu).
Wamalwa and Washiali said nothing in law stops leaders from engaging in constructive criticism of the court’s ruling.
