Kenyatta organised elections, conducted them and declared himself winner, we can’t recognise him – AU

Filed under: International News,Latest News |


President of the African Union Alpha Conde has said that the continental body may not recognize Kenya’s President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.

Speaking hours after attending Supreme Court proceedings in Liberia, Conde said that Africa is facing hard political times as incumbents force themselves into the electorates. He said that Kenya is a leading example where the incumbent conducted elections and declared himself the winner.

“It is sad African countries are being used whenever an example of dictatorial forms of Government is needed. The African Union is trying to manage the current political situation in Liberia so that it will not go Kenya’s way where Mr Kenyatta organized elections, conducted and declared himself the winner. He did not care about the the legitimacy of the office he purports to hold. This Union may not recognize his Presidency, we will not allow him sit in our proceedings because he does not represent Kenyan People”. Said Conde.

”We would have congratulated him if he was elected fairly. AU will not nature dictators under my Leadership.” he added.

  1. Great move Mr President.

    Remind even the one in Zambia warning the Judiciary that if they rule against his third term bid, they will be chaos!

  3. Thank you His excellency Mr Conde. We Kenyans are tired of this Kenyatta and Ruto regime. Their leadership is not for the over 42 tribes in Kenya but for only their 2 tribes. Your move is highly welcomed and appreciated by the less fortuned who are the majority as far as the past 26/10/2017 election process in Kenya is concerned. Your wise words and intended move will not only save Kenyans but the entire Africans countries who are continually being faced by this kind of dictatorial and undemocratic leadership styles where the economic giants have their ways to unjustly rule with faulted election process. May Almighty God Bless you abundantly.

  7. That is laudable stance by AU. We need an element of credibility in the body for Africa to be taken seriously..lets see how we move in other countries. Its a tough example to set given the nature of Africa politics. Is AU going towards zero membership given the behavior of African governments when criticized..

  9. I have not read this “statement” from the AU anywhere else. Mr. Conde is not AU and off the cuff comments like this – if true, can be dangerous. Has the Kenya Supreme Court nullified the re-run?
