BY PSCU/ KORIR JUMA,13TH SEPT 2017-President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday defended himself against claims that he has been attacking the judges of the supreme court since annulling his win in the August 8 election.
Addressing Kisii and Nyamira politicians who met him at state lodge Nakuru,the head of state made it clear that he has no problem with the judiciary but the ruling that denied him his victory.”Am human and i have a right also to express my feelings if i keep quiet i will be telling a lie”.he said.
JUDGES STAYED AWAY
His sentiments coming just a day after judges failed to attend the official opening of the 12th parliament presided over by president Kenyatta on Tuesday 13TH Sept.It is a tradition that has been there that during such a session the judges are invited to attend but this year the sitting space allocated for them stayed unoccupied.
The head of state also said his reaction after the ruling should not be construed to mean he had a problem with any tribe in the country but the judge who made the ruling.
The president has also thanked the Kisii community for overwhelmingly voting for Jubilee asking them to again come out in large numbers and vote for him and his deputy William Ruto on October 17.
According to Kenyatta Jubilee has a plan to ensure that just as they did in the last five years in developing the country,they will do even more and ensure every part of the country grows economically.”It is our vision, focus that matters. Ours is to develop the country and not tribal politics”.he said.
The leaders led by former and recently elected promised to mobilize supporters from the larger Kisii region to vote for Jubilee.
The meeting was also attended by deputy president William Ruto.
