Kenya Elections

The Kenyan people exercised their right to vote on December 27 and turned out to vote in record numbers. The United States has concerns about irregularities in reporting the results, which should be resolved promptly through constitutional and legal remedies. We call on the Kenyan people to avoid violence. We urge all parties to restrain their supporters and reach out to each other to find a peaceful resolution in the interest of continuing to advance Kenya’s democracy and development. The United States is working with all parties to this end.
