The president further urged Kenyans to maintain peace n and love one another irrespective of their tribes.”Tuendelee kuwa na amani na kupendana, jirani kwa jirani bila kujali kabila la yeyote yule”.said the president.
On his part the deputy president William Ruto accused the supreme court of working together with their opponents to deny them their win.According to the deputy president Jubilee won majority of sits in both the national assembly and the senate as well as many governors sits as compared to their opponents confirming that they also won the presidency.
”We want to tell the supreme court at the heart of any democracy there is aright of citizens to make a decision,the decision of citizens must be respected you can not sacrifice votes of kenya people”.he said.

Ruto has also told the electoral commission chair Wafula Chebukati to stop shifting blames to other junior staff of the commission following the bungled August 8 election and instead be ready for the fresh elections.
The deputy president also had bone to pick with the opposition leader Raila Odinga whom he has blamed for his intention to disrupt the national exams calendar. According to Ruto, Odinga has no certificate in Primary or secondary school education that is why he sees no importance of such exams.”He doesn’t know pain of waiting for an exam for 8 or 4 years, that’s why he says children won’t die if its postponed”.said Ruto.
The deputy president affirmed that as long as president Kenyatta was the president of Kenya and himself his deputy exams will not be disrupted.Odinga had said that it was okay for exams to be postponed for at least a week or be brought forward to pave way for the fresh round of elections.
