Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala has said that the outcome of the petitions challenging President Uhuru Kenyatta’s election will validate his win.

Speaking after a visit to Mama Ngina Girls High School in Mombasa, Mr Balala asked the parties who have moved to the Supreme Court to respect its decision.

“It’s good that people have gone to court because we want our President to be vindicated and be officially declared winner of the repeat election. We just want to ask them not to blame the court. I believe the court is wiser and has analysed the negative impact of repeat elections,” said Mr Balala.

He added: “Our Constitution gives powers to anyone to challenge the election and that is why we created the Supreme Court. I think the petitioners will be ventilating their issues but I believe this time they have no case.”
