A statement has been released from KEPSA stating:
"Nairobi, Kenya, August 16, 2022. Having witnessed a peaceful general election in Kenya's history, the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) takes this early opportunity to congratulate Kenyans and all political leaders for a milestone in our democratic maturity. Peace is the cornerstone for a thriving economy and business environment.
Kenyans have been patient so far, this marks a new milestone in Kenya's democratic history.
Under the leadership of Chairman Wafula Chebukati, the IBEC declared William Ruto the winner of the presidential election. The legal option taken by the aggrieved party to go to court is encouraged and we look forward to it being conducted in a peaceful environment. The business community has confidence in this country and in its Justice System.
We urge all Kenyans to go back to work and resume their nation-building activities as the country strives to recover and rebuild from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, drought, and challenges such as the ongoing war in Ukraine and rising global inflation, all that have led to a higher cost of living not only for Kenya.
Kenyans our duty now after the elections is to continue to build our country. Let's get back to work and to our businesses."
