Presidential candidate Japhet Kavinga Kaluyu has left social media in stitches with a invitation to Kenyans to a goat-eating party on Friday at State House after he is declared the winner of  Thursday’s repeat election.

While addressing journalists outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday morning, Mr Kavinga exuded confidence that he was going to win.

“We are ready for the election, I am confident that we will win. I will invite everyone for goat eating at State House on Friday,” said Mr Kavinga.

The independent presidential candidate came in sixth in the presidential election of August 8, 2017 whose  results were later annulled by the Supreme Court.

He later conceded defeat saying, “It is mathematically impossible for him to keep up with the rest.”

High Cort Judge Justice Mativo delivered a verdict that all candidates that had participated in the August 8 general election were entitled to participate as candidates in the fresh polls.

This came after Third Way Alliance presidential candidate went to court to contest IEBC’s decision to only include President Uhuru Kenyatta and Nasa leader Raila Odinga’s names on the ballot paper to be used during the fresh elections ordered by the Supreme Court of Kenya.
