NASA did well by going to court, showed signs of political maturity – UhuRuto

President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto have commended NASA for moving to Supreme Court to seek redress on the dispute over presidential results.

Uhuru said the Raila Odinga’s coalition has a democratic right to express dissatisfaction adding that their decision must be respected.

Uhuru said NASA’s move is an indication of political maturity and thus Kenyans should not be afraid of violence but rather resume their daily duties.

Uhuru was speaking at St Joseph Church in Ngong where he attended a Sunday service.

“I want to assure all Kenyans that we shall come over this season. Politics is just a season but Kenya will forever remain,” Uhuru said.

“I want to urge all Kenyans not be afraid of anything. May you continue to co-exist as you are used to and let us battle in courts.”

He said all Kenyans must shun violence and allow the Supreme Court to conclude on the matter.

DP Ruto, on his side, maintained that the just concluded election was based on policies.

He thanked Kenyans for having participated in a democratic process peacefully.

“We are not celebrating those who won, we are celebrating all Kenyans that even when we have disputes we have become gentlemen and ladies who solve it in a sober way,” he said.

He said NASA opting to seek redress in Supreme Court showed that Kenyan politics has reached commendable heights towards a democratic society.

“Solving such disputes in a manner that is constitutional, legal and peaceful is a cause for all Kenyans to celebrate the maturity of our democracy,” Ruto said.

He said that is an indication that Kenya as a nation is moving places where all Kenyans can work together despite their different opinions.
