resident Kenyatta says he is ok with Raila Odinga’s withdrawal from the repeat presidential election.
The National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader exercised his “democratic right” to withdraw from the repeat poll, Mr Kenyatta said on Tuesday.
However, the president added, the October 26 poll will continue as schedule and as ordered by the Supreme Court.
Mr Kenyatta said while Mr Odinga has a right to pull out of the election, “he should know that Kenyans have a right to choose their leaders”.
He termed Mr Odinga’s withdrawal as “injustice”, saying more than Sh12 billion has been spent to prepare for the repeat poll.
“That money would have been used to build roads,” he said during his campaign in Voi.
