NAIROBI - Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta offered an olive branch to the opposition on Friday after being declared winner of this week's elections, and urged national unity and peace in the wake of a divisive dispute over the fairness of the poll.
"I reach out to you, I reach out to all your supporters," Kenyatta said in comments directed to opposition leader Raila Odinga. "To our brothers, our worthy competitors, we are not enemies, we are all citizens of the same republic."
Uhuru Kenyatta has won the 2017 presidential election.
The President got 8,203,290 votes, while rival Raila Odinga got 6,762,224, IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati said on Friday.
