A day after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission declared the presidential results, the National Security Advisory Committee (NSAC) says the country is still peaceful and secure (IEBC).
The Head of Public Service and NSAC Chairperson, Joseph Kinyua, told journalists on Tuesday that the country’s security situation is stable.
“We laud all Kenyans for a high sense of civic duty and for demonstrating tremendous patience as we waited for the declaration of the Presidential Election results,” Kinyua said in a briefing held at Harambee House.
Kinyua praised the National Police Service (NPS) and all other security agencies for their efforts in keeping the peace during the election period.
He stated that the announcement of the Presidential Election results set in motion other Constitutional processes for the future transition.
Kinyua assured Kenyans that the government was committed to keeping the country peaceful and stable during the transition period.
“The National Security Advisory Committee wishes to assure all Kenyans and all other persons’ resident in our nation that the Government has and continues to take all necessary measures to ensure that the entirety of the Country is safe and secure,” he said.
In order to move the country forward, he urged Kenyans and the business community to resume their normal daily activities.
