Kenya Religious Groups Unite For Peace

Christian and Muslim religious leaders called for the full implementation of the Waki report which investigated the post presidential election dealing with widespread violence mainly caused by the Kenyan government. The Waki report urged prosecution of those who instigated violence in order to close the circle on violence while the Kreigler report urged creation of a new election commission. Catholic bishops said: “we support implementation of those two reports but we have to carefully distinguish between the sins and crimes of an individual and those of a group(or groups) of people.”

After the election there was ongoing chaos as the government refused to accept the will of the Kenyan people. The two groups have now proved conclusively that violence was organized by individuals on both sides,(although mainly on the part of the government) which endeavored to deal with a crisis by use of violence.
