FROM THE IGAD EXECUTIVE SECRETARY
Congratulations to President Uhuru Kenyatta

On behalf of IGAD Member States, the people and citizens of our entire region and on my own behalf, I wish to take this earliest opportunity to congratulate His Excellency Hon. Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta on his successful election for a second term as the President of the Republic of Kenya.

The Republic of Kenya, as founding member of IGAD, continues to play a pivotal role in regional integration and socio-economic development, as well as peace and security of the Horn of Africa.

Democracy and good governance are critical elements to the enhancement of peace, security and stability in the region. As a Kenyan national and a citizen of this region, I am very proud in the peaceful, orderly and transparent manner in which the 2017 general elections have been conducted in accordance with the Constitution and the laws of the Republic of Kenya.

The IGAD Secretariat calls on all political parties and candidates to respect the will of the people of Kenya and to refrain from any act that may be deemed as disruptive nature to the peace and stability of the country. In case of any disputes related to the official results delivered by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), we urge concerned parties to use the proper and legal channels provided by the Constitution of Kenya and the laws of Kenya.

Issued by H.E. Amb Mahboub Maalim, Executive Secretary of IGAD on the 12th day of August 2017, Nairobi, Kenya at 12 noon
