Religious leaders have asked President-Elect William Ruto's supporters to be mindful of other Kenyans wounded by the verdict that upheld his (Ruto's) August 9 victory.

Speaking at Ufungamano house on Tuesday, September 6, Inter-Religious Council of Kenya chairman (IRCK) Joseph Mutie urged Ruto's supporters to be compassionate and considerate toward Raila's supporters by not provoking them.

"We urge you to avoid abrasive or excessive celebrations, keeping in mind that many Kenyans are wounded and aggrieved. Show them love by not provoking or deliberately hurting them," he stated.

He also commended candidates who did not win for what he termed as the desire to be leaders in the country.

The chairman of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), Martin Kivuva, commended Kenyans for maintaining peace.

He also urged newly elected leaders to take full responsibility for stewarding the country to greater heights.

"We urge you to take serious responsibility, do not destroy our nation in corruption and serious gains," he stated.
