Nairobi – Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have warned the international community to stay-off the country’s political affairs ahead of a presidential poll re-run.

Kenya holds a presidential election re-run on October 26 after the Supreme Court overturned Kenyatta’s victory.

His opponent, Raila Odinga is boycotting the re-run citing lack of electoral reforms to guarantee a free and fair election.

According to the Daily Nation, Kenyatta accused the international community and Odinga of brewing trouble in Kenya, saying the former must stay-off the country’s political affairs.

“I want to tell the international community that there is no problem in Kenya. The only problem we have is one man called Raila Odinga (Nasa leader),” Kenyatta is quoted saying at a rally.

Kenyatta said “whites” can only come to Kenya as tourists but not as “advisors on out political situation”.

“We will not allow wazungu (whites) to come and tell us what to do. If they come to Kenya, let them come as tourists.

“Let them go to Maasai Mara, come to Laikipia and other places, but they should not come here and tell us what to do.”
