Nairobi, Kenya: Presidential candidate on Safina ticket Paul Muite has called on Kenyans to conduct themselves peacefully in the coming elections.

Muite, who spoke after being cleared by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) said Kenyans have the opportunity to show the world that they can conduct themselves with maturity in the elections.

Kenya is coming from a dark past after the post-poll violence triggered by a disputed presidential vote, claimed 1,133 lives and displaced over 500,000.

Muite said the country is now blessed with a reformed Judiciary and those who may feel aggrieved should seek redress in the Courts.

“We appeal to Kenyans that we have peaceful elections, we now have a Judiciary that we have faith in, if there are disputes let the Judiciary handle them,” said Muite.

“Let’s respect the wish of the people and let’s show the world that we can have peaceful elections,” he added.

Muite was handed the nomination certificate to contest the Presidency by IEBC Chairman Issack Hassan. He was accompanied by his running mate Shem Ochwodho and party leaders Mwalimu Mati and Jayne Mati.
