The Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) has urged all Kenyans to resume their normal daily activities after the announcement of the presidential election.
The Alliance’s Chief Executive Officer Carole Kariuki stated that Kenyans should focus more on rebuilding the economy that was slowly recovering from COVID-19.
This comes hours after Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga disputed IEBC’s announcement of William Ruto as the president-elect.
KEPSA applauded Kenyans and political leaders for exercising their democratic right to vote and being peaceful in handling the election results.
Kariuki called for patience and exuded confidence in the country’s justice system to handle all disputes pertaining to the election.
“The legal option taken by the aggrieved party to go to court is encouraged, and we look forward to it being conducted in a peaceful environment,” she said.
The public was encouraged to allow peace to prevail as it is a key pillar for a thriving economy and business environment.
We urge all Kenyans to go back to work and resume their nation-building activities as the country strives to recover and rebuild itself from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, drought, and global challenges like the Russia-Ukraine war and rising global inflation,” she said.
