, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 1 – President Uhuru Kenyatta says the Jubilee Coalition is ready to campaign again ahead of the presidential election re-run even though he does not agree with the Supreme Court ruling nullifying his election.

In an address from State House, President Kenyatta however stated that he will respect the decision of the court and seek re-election.

He expressed confidence of a win and cited the many seats won by Jubilee legislators.

“I disagree with it because, as I have said, millions of Kenyans queued and made their choice, and six people have decided that they will go against the will of the people, despite the fact that you as Kenyans have decided and elected a majority of Jubilee governors; a majority of Jubilee senators; majority of Jubilee women representatives; a majority of Jubilee National Assembly representatives; a majority of Jubilee Members of County representatives, MCAs.”

He encouraged all Kenyans to be peaceful and continue to display a democratic spirit.
