Just hours after having his election nullified by the Supreme Court, President Uhuru Kenyatta was back on the campaign trail for the fresh election in 60 days’ time.

During his address, President Kenyatta called out the National Super Alliance (Nasa) telling them to brace themselves for a bruisng battle in the repeat polls.

“We took our campaign to every corner of this country but six people have decided we go back to the ballot. I’m telling that we are ready,” President Kenyatta told a cheering crowd at Burma Market on Friday evening.


The President, who was accompanied by his deputy William Ruto and Nairobi governor Mike Sonko, also promised to transform Nairobi.

“We will not start where the rich live, we will start right here and transform this city in the next two years. I’m telling you Nairobi will look like London,” he said.

President Kenyatta had earlier in the afternoon addressed the nation from State House, Nairobi in a reaction to the court ruling.
