Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga will address the country at 2pm Tuesday, a day after his rival deputy president William Ruto was declared president-elect.

he address will be at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), where the Azimio coalition has set up its media centre.

“Azimio La Umoja Coalition Leader Rt Hon Raila Odinga’s address to the Nation. Time: 2pm Location: KICC, Azimio Media Center. Kindly provide coverage,” said Mr Dennis Onsarigo, Mr Odinga’s presidential campaign press secretary, in a media invite.

Dr Ruto polled 7,176, 141 (50.49 per cent) to secure the 50 per cent plus one required to win the presidency in the first round, edging out Mr Odinga who got 48.85 per cent of the vote.

The KICC had for three days after the Tuesday August 9 General Election been the scene of heightened activities as officials allied to the coalition put final touches to prepare for the announcement of presidential results.

Elsewhere, the National Council of Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) has urged President-elect William Ruto to reach out to his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta and his main rival in the just concluded election Raila Odinga.

Speaking during a press conference on Tuesday, the council’s chairman Stephen Cheboi emphasized the need for the three leaders to reason together for the good of the country.

What we have witnessed from previous elections is that there is a need for us as a nation to work together, especially the leaders, we must tolerate one another, we must embrace one another. In any competition there has to be a winner and a loser so in this case we need to accept the winner as per the results,” he stated.

The Chairman further underscored the importance of peace in the country as leaders work together to get solutions to socio-economic problems affecting Kenyans.

“These are leaders who have worked together before, they may have different ideas on how to move this country forward, but Kenya is bigger than them, so our appeal to the leaders is to work together for the interest of our country,” he stated.

The country now awaits the next step by the Azimio Party who have not yet confirmed concession to the results as Kenya Kwanza celebrates their victory adding that they will serve all kenyans equally regardless of how they voted.

William Ruto was declared the winner of Kenya’s close-fought presidential poll on a day of high drama Monday, with violent protests in his defeated rival’s strongholds, claims of rigging and a split in the commission that oversaw the vote
