At the 54th independence celebration of Kenya, the citizens of the country were unanimous cooperation on unity of the nation. The citizens called for peace among political leaders who were threatening to allegedly commit treason over the last presidential poll in the country.
Kenyan Journalists attending the African Communication Rights Training at Desmond Tutu Centre in Nairobi set the ball rolling as independence celebration winds down at Kaserani Stadium.
Their words: “Kenya has made a lot of progress in education, health and building infrastructure across the country but painfully the country is divided, peace and security are threatened”.
Wanja -Wene Gathu of the Association of Media Women in Kenya was more emphatic in her call saying “we have lost cohesion as a people, the porous Kenyan border has brought illegal aliens who threatened the peace of the country and create insurgency”.
She said the current leadership was ill- equipped to handle the current challenges, hence the need for patriotic citizens to assist government.
