Raila: Next polls crucial for Kenya's image

Prime Minister Raila Odinga on Friday said that the forthcoming general elections will test the nation’s commitment to the ideals of democracy and the sanctity of the ballot.

Noting that the elections provided Kenyans with the opportunity to restore confidence in the country after the bungled 2007 elections, Odinga said the country’s leadership has to reassure the world and citizens that the elections which will be the first under the new Constitution will be free, fair and transparent.

Speaking on Capital FM news on Friday 20th January, he said: “We have to ensure that the elections will be held in an atmosphere that meets the best international standards, that they will take place in an atmosphere free of intimidation, blackmail, victimisation and ethnic mobilisation.”
