American Missionaries have commended the unity talks between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga as unifying citizens and giving right impetus to the much desired economic reforms in the Country.
Metro World Church missionaries led by Prophet Mike Dockrey said the talks heralded peace among citizens in a country that had been highly polarized by political rhetoric between the ruling Jubilee party and the disgruntled opposition coalition, National Super Alliance(NASA).
Dockrey said a lasting consensus between the Government and the opposition on contentious matters of governance and souring points in electoral justice will facilitate cohesion building among citizens that he said were key on forging ahead with nation building on a united front.
He was speaking during a children concert Sunday at the Metro Church in Nakuru where over 3, 000 children benefited from a daylong counseling and mentorship program as well as free meals courtesy of the group of Metro missionaries.
The missionaries urged Kenyans to uphold peace which is pivotal in fast tracking the quest for the much anticipated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
On this score, Nakuru Metro Church Bishop Mike Brawan called on the political leadership and the clergy in the country to lead citizens in the quest for peace amid intensifying calls for tolerance to dissenting political voices among citizens.
Bishop Brawan used the opportunity to congratulate the leaders for displaying responsible leadership and asked the international community to undertake ventures in the country which he said was largely peaceful as social economic development partners.
Stake holders described the protracted political season in the country in 2017 as highly divisive saying it slumped the once leading regional economy.
However, with the unity talks taking the once charged political stage in the country, optimism is high among citizens and the prospect for a better economy is much closer.
