• The video was shared on TikTok after Supreme Court upheld Willian Ruto's win
• The company went on to apologize to Kenyans over the clip.
Public transport company, Transline Classic, has promised to take disciplinary action against one of their employees who went viral mocking Raila Odinga after the Supreme Court ruling.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, the company distanced itself from the viral video, saying the person in question acted in his own capacity.
The TikTok video had gone viral on social media, angering a section of Kenyans.
“Our attention has been drawn by a video clip going around the social media done by the casual worker based at our Afya Centre offices.
"As a company, we wish to dissociate ourselves from that clip and state that it was done by the individual's will and does not in any way represent the views of the company," the statement read in part.
The company went on to apologize to Kenyans over the clip, making it clear that they are in business and not politics.
"We apologize to everybody, especially to our valued customers for the offending clip. As a company we are in business and not in politics.
"We will continue to give the best of the services to all our customers," read part of the statement.
The video captures a man donning the company’s uniform running on the streets shouting- celebrating after the Supreme Court upheld Ruto’s win.
“Wake up! He has been defeated again! Come out and see how he has been defeated again,” the man is heard saying.
William Ruto's win
On Monday, September 5, 2022, the Supreme Court unanimously confirmed William Ruto as President-elect.
“We declare the election of the 1st Respondent as president-elect to be valid under Article 143 of the constitution," Martha Koome said.
Ruto received 50% plus one of the total votes cast, according to Chief Justice Martha Koome, who read the verdict on Monday.
"It is not mathematical sound and that the rounding off of IEBC was correct. The petitioners did not offer a water tight case," Koome said.
