As the general election fast approaches students of the integrity club at Moi girls Kamusinga, in Kimilili Sub County have called upon Kenyans to maintain peace and continue living together in harmony before and after the exercise.
Speaking after holding a peace walk from their school to Kimilili town led by the chair lady of the Club Darius Posline the students expressed their optimism that Kenyans will turn up in large numbers to vote for able leaders.
The Chair lady said as students they are very much concerned about the exercise saying if peace is interrupted in the country they will not be able to travel to school and continue their education saying peace is what they are holding on to.
She called upon members of the society to be cautious of leaders who may incite them to be involved in causing violence saying it is against the law.
Her sentiments were echoed by the Moi Girls school’s student president Bella Nyongesa who urged Kenyans to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner during this campaign period as well as during the election exercise so as to achieve a peaceful election.
She further urged Kenyans to ensure they grill those who are vying for different seats saying getting credible and responsible leaders will enable the country to be steered in the right direction.
“We are fed up with issues of corruption and integrity that keep on popping up, facing different leaders in high portfolios, therefore as Kenyans, we need to be keen on whom we elect so that we have responsible leaders in our country,” she said.
The Club’s patron Mr. Owino Ochola said in his initiative to start the club in the school was to at an early age instil discipline and integrity to the students saying as leaders of tomorrow they will grow up following the right path.
He also called upon Kenyans to ensure they conduct a peaceful election and urged the institution involved to ensure the exercise is free and fair for the benefit of Kenyans who have faith in the institution.
