Church Intensifies Peace Preaching In Uasin Gishu

The church in Uasin Gishu County has taken the lead in promoting peace and unity amongst locals ahead of the August 9 general election.

This follows the national government’s call on religious leaders to support the ongoing peace campaigns being spread by various agencies across the nation in a bid to achieve a peaceful general electioneering period.

Speaking in Ainabkoi Sub County during a peace sensitization forum, Rev. Phelister Tuwei of Reformed Church of East Africa (RCEA) warned youths against being used by politicians in creating chaos and violence during the ongoing campaign period.

The church expects youths to act as ambassadors of peace in the country in ensuring conflict transformation and maximizing peace building through educating every citizen,” said Rev. Tuwei.

She further noted that areas identified as potential election-related violence hotspots could experience peace if politicians undertake to preach peace and avoid language that could inflame conflict.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) recently listed Uasin Gishu as among the violence hotspots ahead of the August poll.

Ainabkoi Sub County was also mapped among hotspot regions of election-violence that remain risky for chaos.

Rev. Tuwei further urged Kenyans to take the lead in promoting peace during this electioneering period.

If there is any time that the country should remain united then it is now and if there is any time when we would want people thinking about putting the nation first then it is now,” said the clergy while emphasizing on the importance of church’s message on peace and unity.

Peace starts from within, therefore every individual has a responsibility of taking part in promoting peace to achieve the success of unity among individuals and communities,” added Rev. Tuwei.
