Lands CS Kaimenyi pleads with losers to concede defeat


Nairobi, KENYA: The Cabinet Secretary for Lands who is also the Chairman of Ameru professionals, has called on all those candidates who lost seats in Meru and Tharaka Nithi counties to concede the defeat and move on in order to build the country.

Speaking to Journalists on Monday in Nairobi , Kaimenyi  noted that the elections conducted by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC were free and fair and no one should complain that their votes were stolen without producing tangible proof in the court of law.

“Ameru professionals wish also to congratulate IEBC for conducting the elections in the most professional manner as emphatically echoed by local and international observers. They have indeed done this country proud.” Said Kaimenyi.

He also stated that, Ameru professionals will continue to support the jubilee government whose manifesto and vision for people of Kenya is clearly articulated in their agenda, as the national government creates 1.3 million jobs to the youths every year and working with the county governments to establish at least one industry in every county.

“According to the said manifesto, the government has committed itself to achieve a lot for us all.” Said Kaimenyi.

He further urged Kenyans to be calm and maintain peace in all manner to avoid any fracas that may be brought about by post elections.

Kaimenyi also congratulated Merus for shown solidarity towards reelecting President Uhuru Kenyatta who was being declared the winner by IEBC on Friday.
