Supporters of Kenya’s president elect, Uhuru Kenyatta have welcomed USA’a recognition of their leader.

USA’s Press secretary sent a letter congratulating Uhuru Kenyatta over being elected as the next president Of Kenya. Kenyatta will be sworn in on April 9th 2013.

‘USA being the super power, her recognition of Kenyatta is very important.’ said Michael Mukuyu a staunch supporter of Kenyatta.’ That shows that USA will collaborate with Kenyatta to develop our country.’

Beatrice Nyambura said, ‘At first we thought that Obama would not support Kenyatta because of the case he has at ICC but am happy that his country has congratulated him.’

The letter from USA’s press secretary read, ‘On behalf of the President and the people of the United States, we congratulate Uhuru Kenyatta on his election as president of Kenya. We also congratulate the people of Kenya on the peaceful conduct of the election and commend Raila Odinga for accepting the Supreme Court’s decision. We urge all Kenyans to peacefully accept the results of the election. The electoral process and the peaceful adjudication of
disputes in the Kenyan legal system are testaments to the progress Kenya has made in strengthening its democratic institutions, and the desire of the Kenyan people to move their country forward.

Now is the time for Kenyans to come together to fully implement the political, institutional, and accountability reforms envisioned in the Kenyan constitution. Kenya is an important member of the international community. We welcome and wish to underscore the importance of Kenya’s commitment to uphold its international obligations, including those
with respect to international justice.

For 50 years, the United States and Kenya have been strong partners. Our relationship is based on a shared commitment to democracy, security, and opportunity. The United States remains committed to our long-standing partnership with the Kenyan people.’
