Deputy President William Ruto has urged leaders from across the political divide to ask their supporters to be peaceful as the election nears.
He also urged religious leaders to unite and pray for peace.
The Deputy President said it is important for the country to remain united even after the election.
“Let us not divide the country along ethnic, religious or political lines during campaigns. We should always remember the country comes first,” Ruto said.
The DP spoke during the inauguration of AIPCA Archbishop Julius Gitau on Sunday. Ruto said the government is committed to ensure a peaceful election. He was accompanied by MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete) and Alice Wahome of Kandara. Murang’a Senator Kembi Gitura was also present.
The DP urged Kenyans to concentrate on making Kenya a better country, saying elections come and go. “Pray for us in Jubilee and those in other parties so that we are all ready for elections. Our mission is to bring all Kenyans together,” Ruto said.
