US Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with the US ambassador in Nairobi, Kenya. Robet Godec has said the United States is supporting the Kenyan opposition to ending a court order in accordance with the law.
The United States has said it has long been a close friend of Kenya and continues to resolve the controversy over the presidential election in Kenya.
The statement from the US embassy in Kenya also said that Kenya’s Supreme Court system is the constitutional way to resolve the concerns of the NASA opposition coalition that the presidential elections do not occur in an inappropriate manner.
On the other hand, the US embassy in Nairobi said that Kenyan citizens were killed and injured in Nairobi’s Kisumu and other rebel-held areas after the 11th of June election commission announced the election results.
Mr. Godec said Kenya has a Constitution that gives all citizens the opportunity to do a peaceful protest and that the US government is saddened by the escalating violence in the opposition.
The US government has urged the security forces not to use force and protect the lives and property of the people.
US Ambassador to Kenya Mr Robet Godey has called on the Independent Commission to investigate IPOA Police Investigations to investigate officials allegedly involved in public protests following the election in Kenya.
