Leaders challenged to focus on reconciliation

02 April 2013, 17:29 Oduor Omondi

Leaders from both sides of the political divide in the country have been challenged to now focus more on peace and efforts to strengthen unity among Kenyans.

Local Capacities for Peace International (LCPI) Executive Director Millicent Otieno says the just concluded political activity, though literally over, has left the nation more divided along political, regional and tribal lines than ever before.

She said the new government must be ready to work towards reconciling all communities in the country.

Speaking in Kisumu, Otieno who is an international consultant on peace and reconciliation matters said the biggest responsibility lies with leaders from both sides who must now rise beyond their party affiliations and strive to create harmony between all and sundry.

“Despite the win, it's very clear that both the CORD and Jubilee sides have a great following across the nation, so leaders must bring all sides together, assuring each side that the government is meant to serve all without favor or discrimination," said Millicent.

She added that the biggest responsibility lies with the newly elected leaders who have to approach their perceived opposition areas and assure them of equal service despite the just completed political competition and affiliations.
