Peace initiatives in Bungoma

13 September 2012, 11:15 Samuel Kisika

District peace committee chairpersons in Bungoma County have been urged to be effective at their work by forwarding reports on time to help the government act upon them with ease.

Speaking to the chairpersons drawn from the nine districts of Bungoma County, the County Peace Monitor, Edwin Kilong said that the government has its support upon the peace committees in the districts and will be able to reach the common Mwananchi very fast through its tireless effort.

He also disclosed that the government will soon be launching an Emergency Rescue Program that aims at helping much in dealing with disasters like floods and landslides often experienced in the Mount Elgon region during rainy seasons.

Kilong called upon other non- governmental organizations and well wishers to show up and sponsor peace initiatives in the region as a way of maintaining a long term peaceful relationship among the diverse tribes residing in the county.

He commented on the efforts of Pact-Kenya organization that has already set up an office and initiated a number of projects in Kopsiro division in Cheptais district and whose impact is already being felt by residents.

“They can foster peace through sponsoring games and other social activities that may help to overcome tribal differences to achieve a stable economic development by unifying such diverse tribes in the county,” said Kilong.

Kilong further cautioned politicians and other political aspirants for the forth coming general election against hate speech and maligning their supporters along tribal lines.

“In the recent National Forum on Peaceful Election graced by His Excellency president Mwai Kibaki, it was agreed that politicians should be cautious in their public speeches lest they stir hatred among their supporters and anyone found should be held responsible for their deeds,” added Kilong.

In his sentiments, the Kimilili district peace chairman, Leonard Khayota said that sub- tribes residing in Mount Elgon region should not refer to themselves as marginalized among the vast Luhyia community of Bungoma County with the inception of County government but rather work together towards achieving a common goal of developing the County.
