Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has asked Kenyans to continue praying for the country especially ahead of the 2022 general election.
Sudi says the current peace and unity that Kenya is enjoying was a result of a commitment to God that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto made in 2012.
Speaking at Kipkenyo in his constituency, the MP said they will continue with the foundation that has been laid previously of ensuring there is peace and unity amongst Kenyans irrespective of their political affiliation.
“In 2012, Uhuru and Ruto came to church to be prayed for and that led to them getting to power and there was no violence. We will continue with that foundation and keep the promise we made of never again inciting Kenyans,” said the vocal MP.
“The most important thing now is that you continue praying for the country,” he added.
Sudi who is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto further assured Kenyans that they have agreed as leaders in Uasin Gishu County that there will never again be violence as a result of political competition.
Uasin Gishu was among the affected counties during the 2007/08 post-election violence that left over a thousand dead and over 600,000 Kenyans displaced across the country.
2013, and 2017 general elections were however largely peaceful as two of the dominant communities in the county voted on the same side for the Jubilee party.
“We have learned from the past and we now know that as politicians our work is to ask for votes but God is the one who elects leaders,” noted Sudi.
