President Kibaki has urged Kenyans to exercise their constitutional right and come out in large numbers to vote on March 4. Kibaki added in his address to the nation that participating in the electoral process will allow Kenyans a chance to determine the course the country will take after the elections. “By voting you will shape the destiny of our nation,” Kibaki said.

Kibaki also urged the presidential candidates to concede defeat if they should fail to clinch the necessary votes. “Appreciate that every election will produce winners and losers,” Kibaki said. He added that the winner should exercise humility in victory while the losers should play their role in taking the country forward.

The president concluded by assuring all Kenyans that the government will provide security for every voter during the electoral process.

“The government has mobilised all security agents to ensure peaceful polls,” Kibaki said.
