Kenya elections 2013

It is two days to elections, the last weekend and the last day of campaigns. Today political parties hold their last rallies, Kenyans are keen on two major political rallies CORD coalition at Nyayo National Stadium and JIBILEE coalition at Uhuru Park, I am not aware if other political parties will also hold their final rallies in Nairobi as well. For a long time we have been told this will be a two horse race and as we can see these two coalitions with rallies in Nairobi today are the horses in the race. We are also anxious about these elections because of what happened after 2007 elections, prayers where held recently candidates hugged, shook hands, apologized and we assumed they have reconciled. They also pledged to preach peace and accept the elections outcome. That was a bit of a relief and assurance to Kenyans that these elections will be peaceful. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissions have also assured Kenyans of a free and fare elections.
Even though we hear stories here and there about leaflets, threats, people arming themselves and others travelling to their rural homes because of fear, security officer have been deployed all over the country to keep law and order. So now all we can do as Kenyans is to have hope as we wait for Monday 4th, vote peacefully and wisely remembering that Kenya is bigger than individuals and after elections we will move on with our lives. Fighting and insulting because of an individual who doesn’t even know you exist is useless and does not add value to people's lives.

 Kenya our Country is beautiful and peaceful let us make it even better by making the right choice on 4th March 2013.

God bless Kenya
