The President of South Africa on Saturday congratulated the Kenyan people for completing the presidential election without any major incidences of violence and congratulated president-elect Uhuru Kenyatta who won by an extremely narrow margin.
"Really I'd like to congratulate, firstly, the people of Kenya, who have gone into the polls and voted, and as you say in democracy, the majority wins the day," he said. "The fact that they voted and they've decided to choose their leader and he has been declared the winner, I'd like to congratulate him as well for winning elections. You know that in the last elections the conclusion was rather a little bit problematic, although the elections were rare. We are happy today that the announcement has been made and the people of Kenya are accepting this," said President Jacob Zuma.
