The CS called on all Kenyans to maintain peace in the country even after the Supreme Court ruling.

He at the same time, asked Kenyans to accept the verdict, whichever way it will take, as he exuded confidence of a ruling that will enable the country have peace and move on.

The Kieni Member of Parliament (MP), Kanini Kega and his Mathira counterpart, Rigathi Gachagua, accused NASA leader, Raila Odinga, of instigating violence in a bid to ascend to power through the backdoor.

They said the law was clear that there was no other way of getting country’s leadership other than through an election, which he refused to take part in.
