BY EURIDICE NZIOKA,NAIROBI,23RD OCT 2017-President Kenyatta says he is ready for the repeat presidential election slated for Thursday this week and had no demands on IEBC, other than the electoral body meeting its obligation of conducting fresh presidential elections on October 26 as ordered by the Supreme Court.
“We made clear that we have no demands or conditions on this subject. We have made funds available for the IEBC to do its job. Now they really should deliver,” the President said.
“We only insist that elections be held on October 26, that’s the time line set by the IEBC in terms of conditions set in the annulment of the August 8 elections,” the President added.
President Uhuru Kenyatta was speaking when he met with IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati on Monday at his Harambee house office in Nairobi.
The meeting largely revolved around the fresh presidential election.
The meeting was also attended by Deputy President William Ruto.
