Religious Leaders have condemned violent actions in Kibra especially the fire at PCEA and the Masjid A-Aqsa Islamic Mosque.
“…We are deeply pained and regret the unfolding and spiralling incidences of violence linked to nationwide protests…”
“Our unity is always the strength upon which we have always faced challenges and tribulations in our long years of brotherly co-existence. Christians and Muslims have never been enemies.” They also called and prayed for peace to prevail.
“We are calling on all politicians to refrain – to cease and desist- from using inflammatory language in political meetings and on social media to advance hard stances and incite their ardent followers…”
In the foregoing, we call on;
1. President William Ruto and Hon. Raila Odinga to have unconditional meet-ups and discussions to quell political tension in the country.
2. Azimio One Kenya Coalition to call off its demonstrations and use alternative approaches to handle their grievances.
3. Civil Society Organisations to stop being sucked into political persuasions but retain their positions as the dependable nerve centres of good governance, leadership and national security advocacy.
4. Religious leaders to fully engage political leaders in non-partisan ways for the good of the country and inter-religious support to national leadership.
5. Media to engage pursue non-partisan, non-aligned coverage and reporting of political events so that media reporting and coverage is not misconstrued to fan political motives.
6. Politicians to immediately stop aggressive political mobilization aimed at destabilizing national peace and security.
7. National Security Council to intervene and direct the state of internal threats to national security without further delay.
8. Well-wishers to join the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya is rebuilding the destroyed property and restoring families here in Kibra to a better state of living.
