President Kenyatta reiterates October 26th poll on, warns opposition against plunging Kenya into chaos again

President Uhuru Kenyatta has today at the Mashujaa day celebrations asked Kenyans to stand up and reject leaders who are scheming to plunge the country into chaos. He said the Government will not tolerate chaos disguised as exercise of freedoms to create suffering in the country.

“We vowed never to repeat the regrettable events that almost sunk us. We must, therefore, wake up and say “NO” to any misleading leader out to plunge Kenya into chaos. Kenyans have the choice and means of resisting such leaders and their evil schemes, and should do it now,”

said the President in his address from Uhuru Park, Nairobi.

The President called on Kenyans to exercise their democratic right on October 26 to defend their inalienable right to vote for the leader of their choice. The Head of State said the Government is ready to counter any threats to national security during and after the October 26 fresh Presidential election.

“The law will apply equally to all regardless of social class, political position and no one will be spared. For those who thrive in chaos and relish anarchy, your days are numbered; the law will take its course and sanction you accordingly,”

said the President.

Mr Kenyatta said voting for leaders of the people’s choice is a right that was hard won by the country’s forefathers, which should be guarded jealously. The President warned opposition leaders who are intimidating the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission in a bid to prevent it from holding the election.

“To those threatening and intimidating the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), its staff and other entities, this must cease forthwith. We must trust, nurture and safeguard our institutions to enable them to grow and perform their functions,”

he said.

The President said even though the Constitution guarantees the right to demonstrate peacefully, that right is guaranteed only for those operating within the confines of the law.

“As a modern state, Kenya must be guided by the rule of law,”

said the President.

Mr Kenyatta called on Kenyans to turn out in large numbers to exercise their democratic and Constitutional right to vote on October 26.

“Your vote will be your contribution to the dream of our forefathers for a peaceful and prosperous Kenya. True Kenyan heroes will cast their votes on 26th this month. This is the only way we can make Kenya great and guarantee a great future for our children,”

said the President.
