Rift Valley Peace Forum Chairman Samwel Musumba has said Kenyans have come of age and they cannot allow to be used by politicians.
Musumba maintained that although there was high anxiety and expectation among the Nakuru residents regarding who was going to be the fourth president, the residents have so far maintained peace.
“Nakuru County residents and Rift Valley showed maturity in politics after voting for their desired candidates and also the unity demonstrated by the two communities who have been warring by coming together to vote for their preferred presidential candidate,” he said.
He added that the country needs to remain calm even after the final results of the President are given out by IEBC.
While speaking during a press briefing on Friday, Musumba said that the government remains committed to maintaining peace saying the law will not be lenient to any law breakers.
“We have to be peaceful during this time even after the IEBC gives out final presidential results because we only have one Kenya,” he noted.
At the same, the Rift Valley Peace Forum Chair urged Nakuru residents to resume working exuding confidence that nothing was going to disrupt their businesses.
He also challenged the public to be peace ambassadors in their local areas saying the country has to move on regardless of the outcomes.
“We have to go back to work because our economy has to grow,” he urged.
