The National PEFA churches of Kenya Secretary General Bishop John Okinda has called for peace ahead of Tuesday general elections,

Okinda, in a special summon and prayers at the church’s cathedral in Migori town said God’s intervention will help have a peaceful exercise and called on Kenyans to ensure they abide by the law.

“We want Kenyans to come out in large numbers, cast their votes and head home and wait for the results,” he said.

Okinda warned against using social media to create panic and share propaganda which will cause tension.

“Above all we want to challenge candidates and voters that in any election there are winners and losers, those who may feel aggrieved can as well move to court for petition and dont disturb the country’s peace,” Okinda said,.

He also appealed to IEBC to have credible, transparent and verified elections.

“We hope and pray we wont get a scenario like in last election where servers were in other countries where people were sleeping,” he said.

He said as the church they were ready to mediate to bring peace during and after the elections for Kenya to move forward.
