Kangundo MP Fabian Kyule has urged NASA and Jubilee principals Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta respectively to respect Monday’s Supreme Court ruling on the fate of the October 26 repeat polls.

The Member of Parliament from Machakos County has called on President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga to respect the Supreme Court ruling to accept whatever outcome the Chief Justice David Maraga-led court will pronounce saying doing so would promote peacefulness in the country.

Speaking in his Kangundo turf on Saturday, the Muungano party lawmaker also advised the two leaders to preach peace among their supporters in the approach to the big decision so that they do not resort to violent confrontations.

“We are hoping that our two leaders will accept the outcome of the Supreme Court decision set for Monday. It’s only by doing so that we can achieve the much-needed peace. The judiciary is an independent institution whose determination should be binding to all”, he said.

Former Kilome MP Harun Mwau and two civil society activists Njonjo Mue and Khelif Khalifa filed petitions challenging the reelection of President Uhuru Kenyatta in the repeat polls.

The NASA principal Mr. Odinga had withdrawn from the re-run just 15 days to poll day citing irregularities in the Independence Electoral and Boundaries Commission {IEBC}. He and other NASA politicians accused IEBC for failing to meet their reducible minimums
