In their report, the observer noted that Kenya has displayed real democracy, institutional credibility and upholding the rule of law.
The president together with the Kenyan citizens were also commended for conducting peaceful and Inclusive campaigns.
In their brief to President Kenyatta, the team noted that the election system and institutions worked within the law and international best practices.
