BURUNDI’s NKURUNZIZA congratulates UHURU KENYATTA for winning the PRESIDENCY

Thursday August 10, 2017-Burundi President, Pierre Nkurunziza, has become the first president to congratulate President Uhuru Kenyatta after he was re-elected for the second term.

According to provisional results by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), President Uhuru Kenyatta is leading with 8,090,513 votes while NASA presidential candidate, Raila Odinga is trailing with 6,687589 votes.

 In his statement on Thursday, Nkurunziza said he and the people of Burundi congratulate Uhuru after he was re-elected for the second term in office.

On behalf of all Burundians, I congratulate President elect @UKenyatta and the people of Kenya. Looking forward to strengthen our relations,” Nkurunziza wrote on Twitter.

 However, Nkurunziza remarks have been dismissed by NASA supporters who abused him for congratulating Uhuru yet the election is not over.

“Kenya is not a banana Republic like Burundi where you hold people hostage... Nobody has been declared the winner!” One Kenyan told Nkurunziza.

Kenyans have spoken!! Congrats President Uhuru Kenyatta for your Re-election,” another Kenyan wrote.
