The Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli has congratulated President-elect William Ruto after the Supreme Court upheld his victory in the August 9 General Election.

Taking to social media on Monday, the Azimio la Umoja loyalist said that he respects the Supreme Court’s decision and urged Kenyans to remain calm moving forward.

“During COTU (K) Executive Board meeting on 17th August, we resolved that immediately after the Supreme Court judgment, we must thank and congratulate the victor,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Consequently, we congratulate President William Ruto. We appeal to workers and Kenyans in general to remain peaceful.”

During the ruling, which was given by Chief Justice Martha Koome on Monday, all allegations challenging the announcement of President-elect William Ruto were dismissed, establishing that there was no substantive evidence provided before the court to prove that the Independent Electoral and Independent Commission (IEBC) fraudulently conducted the polls.

CJ Koome similarly ruled that the petitioners, led by Raila Odinga and Martha Karua, did not have a watertight case against both IEBC and President-elect William Ruto.
