The 2016 National Campaign Manager of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has applauded the Supreme Court of Kenya for annuling the results of the country’s 2017 presidential polls.
Reacting to news of the annulation of the election results, Mr Peter Mac-Manu expressed satisfaction on the ruling of the Supreme Court describing it as ‘unprecedented’.
“I think the Supreme Court has spoken and at this point I can only be happy about the decision of the court. I think it is unprecedented and therefore should be obeyed by all,” he said.
Mr Mac Manu who was leading a team of election observers from the Democratic Union of Africa into Kenya in the run up to that country’s election, scheduled for August 8th was denied entry.
Reports from Kenya indicated that his denial was linked to his role as Honorary Chairman of the Democratic Union of Africa, an umbrella body of centre- right parties in Africa which includes some opposition parties in Kenya.
He was also accused of being on a mission to cause a regime change in the East African country.
In an exclusive interview on Adom FM’s Morning Show, ‘Dwaso Nsem’ Friday, Peter Mac Manu revealed that he believes a high profile personality of the ruling government in that country played a key role in his deportation.
The NPP elections guru however refused to name the high profile person in Kenya who orchestrated his deportation.
