"We have reached a place where we need to forgo our tribal backgrounds and forget where people are from. We need to value our I.D cards – all they say is Kenyan. That's all that matters. Not tribe, not status – just Kenyan. Its amazing how the international media is desperately trying to portray only the worst part of the clashes. It's like they were on standby to tear us down. That just shows how the success of this country is being envied by outsiders, and we must work hard to protect it. This is a very blessed country and it's a shame that now we are becoming familiar with those blessings and are now abusing them. I pray that Kenyans can travel outside this country, then they will realize just how blessed Kenya is. We need to fight this violence and killings, and watch out for the spirit of tribalism. We might be resurrecting a big monster that can bring down this nation in just a few months. Let's turn to God."
"My appeal is for us to immediately stop the war in our nation. The effects and consequences of war are far too painful for a country to handle, I would know, I came from a country that has been war-torn for years. I know what it is like, and how it made my country backwards. I would not wish that on Kenyans. I urge us to stop following our politicians blindly, and at all costs, avoid war."
"I think for a nation that is 80 per cent Christian, we have let ourselves down very badly, and we've let our country down. We should have come out earlier and more strongly to condemn the violence and practice what we preach. It's a shame that we have even allowed politicians into our very churches to advocate for their issues, and then we forget to keep them accountable. Previous regimes in this country we're kept on their
toes by the Christian community. Now the church needs to rise up and keep our nation accountable".
"Maybe this is a wake up call for the church, maybe the church has run away from God. We need to pray intently and turn back to God - it is time for true repentance. We have seen senseless violence. We have seen tribalism. We have seen witchdoctors involved in the electioneering process. We need to repent for all the sins of the Kenyan people.If we have thought evil of our leaders, we need to repent. Our sin will cause God not to listen to us." "Also, God needs to give a discerning spirit to our young people: so that they can know when they are being held captive by politicians."
