Nairobi, Kenya: Kenya has condemned Wednesday’s military coup in Egypt that saw President Mohammed Morsi ousted by the army.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will issue a comprehensive statement on the matter but could not hesitate to condemn the act.

Uhuru said it was a matter of grave concern not just for the African continent but to those who believe in democracy.

“What is happening in Egypt is matter of grave concern not just to African but to anyone who truly believes in democratization process,” he said.

The President while saying the Foreign Affairs Ministry will issue a statement, signaled that Kenya may not recognize the new administration as the country is a member of the African Union (AU) which has a clear position on coup de tats.  The AU does not recognise leaders who rise to power through military.

Uhuru was responding to a question from a foreign journalist Thursday evening at State House where he had convened a press conference to address the ongoing teachers strike.
