U.S President Barack Obama says he does not support any candidate for Kenya's March 4 presidential elections.
In a message to the Kenyan people Obama said the American government does not support any of the presidential candidates but "we do support an election that is peaceful and reflects the will of the people" he said.
Obama urged Kenya to reject division and violence during the elections stating that "Kenya must resolve disputes in the courts and not in the streets" adding that "all people of Kenya must come together before and after the election to continue the work of building [the] country."
The American President lauded the progress made after the post poll violence that rocked the country five years ago stating that Kenya managed to build communities, reform institutions and pass a new constitution during that period. He said a peaceful election will usher in prosperity for Kenya and unlock the talents of its citizens, especially the youth.
