He encouraged Kenyans to "dismiss the legislative issues of disruptiveness and showdown."
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta is asking solidarity after a troublesome race that was boycotted by his fundamental adversary. 

Talking amid Independence Day festivities in the capital, Nairobi, on Tuesday, Kenyatta said the "solidarity of our country is the shield against the risks that have smashed different nations." 

He asked Kenyans to "dismiss the governmental issues of disruptiveness and encounter." 


Kenyatta won with 98 percent of votes in the October race after the Supreme Court invalidated the August vote over inconsistencies. Restriction pioneer Raila Odinga, whose legitimate test prompted the new race, boycotted it while saying constituent changes had not been made. 

Odinga's supporters had arranged a deride "initiation" Tuesday however it was scratched off in the midst of weight from the United States and others. 

The resistance pioneer declines to recognize Kenyatta's authenticity.
