NAIROBI, Kenya’s newly re-elected President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged the opposition to avoid violent protests and take their grievances over last Tuesday’s general election results to court.
In his first public appearance since he was declared winner of the presidential elections, Kenyatta Monday also urged the police to exercise restraint when dispersing protesting opposition members.
Kenyatta spoke as businesses started resuming operations in most parts of the country after a week of uncertainty following the announcement of the disputed polls results.
However, Kenyans have largely ignored calls by opposition leader Raila Odinga to boycott work and mourn those who lost their lives during violent protests against the outcome of the polls.
Odinga has rejected the elections results saying the exercise were marred by massive fraud. He is expected to announce his next move on Tuesday.
