“Kenya is the first country in the world where a few, just 4, decided to overturn the will of 15 million people who woke up early, queued for hours and voted peacefully,” he said, adding that although he respects the decision of the court, he does not agree with it.

For now let us meet at the ballot,” he added in a Facebook post that seemed to have been lifted from a speech.
