President Uhuru Kenyatta has called for Kenyans to pray for the country.
The head of state has admitted to the country going through a rough patch ever since the Supreme Court judgement nullified his win.
Kenyatta has asked Kenyans to seek the ‘face of God’ as the October 26 elections fast approach.
”Scripture says that if the people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land,” the President says.
”On that day we will be asking for God’s blessing for our nation: we will also ask God to abide with us, and to guide us, both in this period, and in time to come. We will pray for our leaders: that they may be granted wisdom, humility, and that they may love peace and justice. We will also pray for each other: for if your brother or sister asks you forgiveness, do not withhold it. For the truth is that the politics of the day is fleeting, but this nation, under God’s care, endures. We cannot let what is fleeting sully what is permanent.”
The Jubilee party leader insisted that the October elections are still on as scheduled even after IEBC commissioner, Roselyn Akombe resigned.
He has called for reconciliation amid high political temperatures.
Ms Akombe noted that her life was in danger and that the commission could not hold ‘a credible election.’
