Uhuru won fairly in repeat election – European Union says

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory in the just concluded repeat election has been hailed as having been held in a free and fair manner.

The election has been given a clean bill of health by the European Union Election Observer Mission (EU EOM) which said it was satisfied with the process.

The observer mission also noted challenges faced by the IEBC including divisions at the electoral body and numerous court cases that bogged down its service delivery.0fgjhs2atpbbf4j5dg.0198b9f4.jpg

Citizen TV reported that the missions chief observer Marietje Schaake had noted improved technical handling of results “despite weaknesses in the electoral commission.”

On Wednesday, November 1, TUKO.co.ke reported how the EU observer mission blamed both Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga for causing political uncertainty in the country.

To end this crisis, the mission urged the duo to hold meaningful dialogue and put to an end the simmering animosity between them.

The IEBC has already gazetted the reelection of Kenyatta while the Opposition has dismissed the poll terming it a sham.

NASA has since said it will give Jubilee a hard time despite calling for a fresh election within 90 days.
