Kenya is braced for general elections, which some fear could see a repeat of the horrific nationwide violence which followed the December 2007 polls. Kenya’s 42 million people are divided into more than 40 different ethnic groups and many Kenyans vote along ethnic lines.
After the 2007 election, ODM supporters accused the PNU of rigging the polls and staged street protests. These quickly turned violent and degenerated into tit-for-tat ethnic attacks, especially in the densely populated and ethnically mixed Rift Valley, where Kikuyu and Kalenjin compete for land. Thirty-five ethnic Kikuyus were burned to death in a church at Eldoret. There were also deadly clashes in Naivasha and Nakuru.
More than 1,000 people were killed and about 600,000 people fled their homes. Five years later, the UNHCR estimates about 100,000 people are still living in tented camps around the country. With such memories still raw, some people fear the March 4th elections could lead to a new outbreak of violence, as seen during the party nominations in parts of the country earlier this year.
Over that time many of our Brothers and Sisters had to flee their homes. They are asking us to please pray for them.
Death & Sickness in Kenya is bad enough during normal times and to make things worse the Doctors at district hospitals are currently on strike. It is said that up to 50% of the patients are dying at the hospitals. Pray for the suffering, dying and their families and that God will move the hearts of those responsible for this situation.
