The catholic youths have staged a peaceful walk in Kakamega town calling for peace during and after General Election slated for 9th August 2022.

Led by father Vincent Ngatia who is in charge of the youths in the church, they have gone around the town preaching peace and warning against violence during and after General Elections.

Father Ngatia has called upon residents to make informed choices when practicing their democratic right in the 9th August polls.

The church has also called upon the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC to ensure a credible election to avoid a repeat of the 2017 post election violence.

The message was echoed by their counterparts from the Friends church in Kenya led by the Nabongo Monthly meeting pastor Elphas Ashiundu.

Speaking at the Kefinco Friends church, pastor Ashiundu called upon all the political contestants and Kenyans as a large to have faith in the Electoral Commission and trust them with the work given to them.

Ashiundu also called upon all the faithful to keep on praying for the nation and urged Kenyans to maintain peace during and after the electioneering period.

The clergy has also called upon the national government, IEBC and parents to ensure that students are not involved in politics and that school property which will be majorly used on the voting and as tallying centers are safe.
