“The Kenyan Supreme Court is expected to rule on the petitions challenging the presidential election result by March 30, 2013. The decision may be announced during the Easter holiday weekend, a time when many people go out of town,” said the statement.

The embassy, however, said there are possibilities of people receiving the outcome in a more different way and cautioned its citizens to avoid gatherings.

“There could be a strong public reaction to the announcement; therefore, the U.S. Embassy strongly urges all U.S. citizens to avoid gatherings, demonstrations, downtown business areas, slums, and large crowds of any kind,” the statement further advised.


The US government said the predictability of the gathering is not definite, adding, there was a possibility of violence.

“Remember even gatherings intended to be peaceful can turn violent with little or no warning. Demonstrations could also lead to traffic congestion and possible road closures,” said the statement.

“U.S. citizens are advised to be cautious and monitor local media for the latest information on demonstrations and traffic disruptions, particularly those who plan to spend the holiday away from home. For those who have not done so, we encourage you to read the of the Embassy website.’

This comes as the Supreme Court judges led by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga continue to listen to presidential election loser Raila Odinga’s petition challenging the outcome of the March poll.
