The real problem with elections in Kenya is people who do not accept defeat, Deputy President William Ruto has said.
The DP said most of these people use the electoral commission (IEBC) as a scapegoat.
"... the problem is the people who refuse the outcome of elections. That is when they run amok. Going forward we should only allow democrats to participate in the elections," he said.
Ruto was speaking at Chatham House in London on Friday.
Although he did not mention names, the DP seemed to be referring to ODM party leader Raila Odinga who has in the past contested presidential election outcomes.
In 2017, President Uhuru Kenyatta won the August 8 election but Raila objected the results at the Supreme Court, which invalidated the victory over adherence to electoral laws and the constitution.
The court then ordered for fresh polls on October 26 in which Raila boycotted citing lack of reforms at IEBC and gave a list of "irreducible minimums".
