Stop attacks on IEBC ahead of repeat poll — Uhuru Kenyatta

Stop attacks on the electoral commission and its staff as they prepare for repeat presidential election, President Kenyatta has said.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Mr Kenyatta said on Friday, should be allowed to carry out its constitutional mandate.

Addressing the nation during Mashujaa Day celebrations at Uhuru Park in Nairobi, Mr Kenyatta said attacks, as witnessed in parts of Nyanza and western Kenya, were a threat to democracy.
