Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga and Kenya Deputy President William Ruto have today attended church services in different locations.
Odinga stepped out for the first time since election day and attended a church service at St. Francis ACK Church in Karen.
He was accompanied by Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) boss Francis Atwoli, Kanu chairman Gideon Moi and Lang’ata MP-elect Phelix Kodhe.
Raila’s running mate Martha Karua was also present at the service.
Speaking at the service, Odinga compared the situation in Kenya as a reflection of the words of St. Francis of Assisi.
“I have a message I want to share and I will quote from St. Francis of Assisi, which says, make me an instrument of your peace. And this is what he says, Lord make me an instrument of your peace, where there is hatred, let be so love, where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith, where there is despair hope. Where there is darkness, light and where there is sadness, joy,” Raila said.
Meanwhile, Ruto led Kenya Kwanza leaders and his family in a church service at his Karen residence.
Leaders present were Rigathi Gachagua, Machakos governor Alfred Mutua, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, among others.
