I am breaking our blog fast to congratulate His Excellency Mwai Kibaki on his reelection as the president of the Republic of Kenya. I pray that his second five year term in office will see more prosperity, peace, and improved quality of life for all Kenyans.
Congrats and well wishes to all the other victors in this general election. I pray that you will work tirelessly for a better Kenya.
This electoral process has not been all smooth. Hundreds have lost their lives leading up to the general election. Just today less than one hour after the announcement, fourteen people had already lost their lives. I pray that those who have lost will realize that destroying their own cities, towns, and homes will not change the outcome. Please use the legal system to fight, not our streets.
I understand that the vast majority of Kenyans have been watching and waiting quietly and peacefully in their homes. I pray for you. I pray that a few angry sore losers will not destroy all that you have worked for in the past five years. I pray that you will continue to prosper and will be able to give your children better lives. Kenya is divided, but I pray that cool heads will prevail. It is now time to join hands together and work towards a better Kenya.
God bless Kenya.
