South Africa's opposition chief and the Economic Freedom Fighters Party Leader Julius Malema has urged ODM leader Raila Odinga to accept the outcome of the just concluded presidential elections.

In a statement posted on the EFF's social media platforms, Malema asked Raila to accept the results and act with restraint with his supporters.

"EFF calls on the rival, the contestants and in particular, Raila Odinga to accept the results of the elections and act with restraint with their supporters," the statement read in part.

Malema opined that presidential candidates in Africa should not relive harrowing past experiences characterized by an election's aftermath of brutal violence.

The firebrand opposition chief further called on the African Union and the East African Community to ensure that any candidate who will lead the country to violence is charged before the African Court of Human and People's Rights for swift justice.

"The EFF calls on the President-Elect and his supporters to be magnanimous in victory and Honourable Raila Odinga to be gracious in defeat for the good of peace and order in the nation of Kenya," Malema added.
