Kenya's President promises peaceful pollBy PPS | Tuesday, May 22 2012 at 18:02
Kenya's President Mwai Kibaki Tuesday said the government had put in place measures to ensure next elections would be peaceful, free and fair.
President Kibaki said necessary institutions to oversee the transition were in place and the government would see to it that views and aspirations of Kenyans were reflected during the polls.
Speaking at his Harambee House office in Nairobi when bidding farewell to outgoing Polish ambassador Anna Grupinska, the President called for enhanced trade to bolster friendship between the two countries.
“We need to move with speed and exploit the existing potential in business and trade for the benefit of our citizens,” President Kibaki said.
Ms Grupinska noted that the greatest legacy of President Kibaki's, other than improved roads and the enactment of the new Constitution, was the increased rights and freedoms enjoyed by Kenyans.
