Church leaders have been urged to provide leadership and pray for the country as we head towards 2022 General Elections.
Nandi Governor Stephen Sang and Chesumei Member of Parliament Wilson Kogo said the Country leadership needs prayers and direction from the church.
Speaking during the inaugural of Africa Inland Church (AIC) Nandi Area at Kapsabet Bible College, the governor said the church has a special role to play to ensure the leadership and stability in the Country is maintained during this electioneering period.
“We have seen prayers changing things in our Nation and that’s why we are calling upon religious leaders to pray for our Country and our leaders to ensure peace and harmony prevails even after elections,” he said.
His sentiments were echoed by Kogo who said religious leaders should pray for politicians to engage in peaceful campaigns.
Speaking at the same event, Kogo said during election time, emotions normally go up calling on leaders to tolerate one another, engage in politics that is devoid of insults and preach peace.
“We are praying that despite the emotions of elections, we will still appreciate each other, maintain peace and have a Country that will be harmonious,” he said.
The leaders noted that it’s through prayers that good leaders will be elected who will spearhead development in various regions.
They appealed to political leaders across the country to engage in politics that will enhance unity and not division.
“Let’s allow citizens to exercise their democratic right by electing whoever they feel can lead them well without interference and intimidations,” said Kogo
