Religious leaders in Mwingi, Kitui county have urged Kenyans to accept the verdict of the Supreme Court as a win for Kenya.
This is following Supreme Court's ruling that saw President-elect William Ruto's win upheld paving the way for his swearing-in on September 13, 2022.
Speaking on Monday, September 5 during their visit to Waita Prison in Mwingi Central, the religious leaders led by Bishop Mutemi Mutua of Mwingi Bishops Association asked all Kenyans regardless of their political affiliations to accept the ruling of the Supreme Court and support the incoming leaders for a peaceful transition.
"We request all Kenyans to remain united and put aside their political differences, this is a win for us Kenyans, let's join hands and build a new Kenya," Mutua said.
The leaders commended Kenyans for keeping calm during the electoral period and urged them to continue with the spirit as it's each and every Kenyan's duty to maintain peace.
Bishop Michael Njenga urged political leaders to shun utterances which could incite Kenyans against each other and instead preach love and unity.
The Mwingi Bishops Association acknowledged that Kenyans are suffering from harsh economic times and thus called for the speedy recovery of the economy.
Mwingi Pastors Association were accompanied by Court Users Committee where they donated foodstuffs and clothes to Waita Prisoners.
