Pentecostal and Evangelical church leaders and other religious groupings under the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya (IRCK) have called for peaceful coexistence ahead of polls.

The churches will on Saturday hold prayers at Uhuru Park for peace, unity and stability in the country ahead of the General Election scheduled to take place in just under three weeks.

Led by deliverance church’s bishop Mark Kariuki, religious leaders from across the country say the church is non-partisan and will support whoever wins in the elections.

“As church leaders we pledge to play a neutral and reconciliatory role to all political competitors especially during this electioneering period,” he said. The church also warned political leaders against zoning the country along ethnic lines, adding that this could be a recipe for chaos.
