Kangundo parliamentary hopeful Fabian Muli has urged the clergy to pray for peace before, during and after the August 8 elections. Muli who was speaking at a church service at Kwa Mathathi AIC said that there is need for religious leaders and the church to conduct prayers for the country during this time of tension-packed electioneering period. He also said Machakos County should also be committed to prayers because it was highlighted as one of the hot-spots during and after elections.
"As religious leaders and the church, we have a duty to pray for peace before, during and after elections. Let us also remember to pray for our county Machakos because it was named as one of the hot-spots during and after elections," said Muli.
"Let us not shed blood because of elections, there is life after elections we should all continue to live as brothers and sisters," he added.
Muli called on other communities living in Ukambani, in the country's lower eastern not to live in fear because the Kamba community is known to be a calm and peaceful community. He further urged people to examine candidates and their manifesto before voting and vote wisely.
