Religious Leaders meet Hon.Raila Odinga

Religious Leaders have today August 20, held a consultative prayer session with the Rt Hon Raila Odinga at his Karen Home

The Inter-Faith leaders and Rt Hon Raila call for peace and calm in the nation awaiting legal process through petition in Supreme Court.

Speaking to the press, the Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga maintained that the Azimio faction strongly believes that the outcome of the said contest was interfered with but that the outfit would exercise democracy by seeking legal redress.

“We have decided to move to court because we want to see justice served and peace prevail in our nation. We want to know the truth because some of the things that were done by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) prior to the announcement of the presidential polls are very questionable,” said Odinga.

In their part, the Religious leaders led by Archbishop Martin Kivuva and Bishop Jackson Ole Sapit urged Kenyans to maintain the peace and await the Supreme Court’s decision.

“Looking at what has happened in our country, we have been assured the country is at peace because of their performance in terms of advising the electorate that we need a peaceful country and we can affirm that the Odinga’s family stands for peace,” said Ole Sapit. 

“They have decided to pursue truth and justice through the court which is what we have been advocating and crying for. Let us all be patient as they pursue that path.” 

The Religious Leaders being concerned with the apparent disunity among the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission(IEBC), have equally met with the Commissioners to pray and listen to them with a view of finding an amicable way forward.
