We have been to war with each other post-election in 2008 and our pain lies still beneath the surface of our skin, long after the scabs have gone. We do not want to go back there. Let’s be true to who we are as Africans and citizens of Kenya. As the African YMCA movement, and on behalf of the young people of our beloved continent, we urge our brothers and sisters in Kenya to embrace peace.
Africa needs peace! Africa needs to send a strong message to the world that we are mature and are keen to build a prosperous, peaceful and integrated Kenya.
God bless Kenyans as they go to the polls – let their hopes, beliefs and actions be a reflection of the Africa we Want.
