The remarks by Ruto come a day after Azimio leader Raila Odinga rejected the Presidential results.

President-elect William Ruto says his Kenya Kwanza Alliance is ready to engage in court processes that will emerge as a result of them being declared winners of the August 9, polls.

Speaking at the Deputy President's official residence in Karen, on Wednesday, the UDA leader said they are ready for any petition.

He expressed commitment to follow all legal requirements that the courts will require them to follow adding they are democrats.

"If there will be court processes we will engage on those because we are democrats and we believe in the rule of law," Ruto said.

The remarks by Ruto come a day after Azimio leader Raila Odinga rejected the Presidential results announced on Monday by IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati.

He said the results are null and void alleging that they were doctored in favour of his opponent Ruto.

He said he will be moving to the Supreme Court of Kenya to challenge them.

"Let no one take the law into their own hands. We are pursuing constitutional and lawful channels to invalidate Chebukati's illegal and unconstitutional pronouncement. We are certain that justice will prevail," Raila said.

Raila termed the four IEBC Commissioners who disputed the results announced by Chebukati heroes of the August 9 election."We are proud of them and ask them not to fear anything because Kenyans are with them."

On Monday, the four led by commissioner Juliana Cherera said they cannot take ownership of the results because of the opaque nature they have been handled.

 "We have made sure that we have improved the standards and we say as a fact, as commissioners we have done a good job.

"But some things need to be put out there as you can see the four of us are here and not at Bomas where the results are going to be announced because of the opaque nature of how this phase has been handled," Cherera said.

"We therefore cannot take ownership of this result that is going to be announced," she added.
