Women group wants planned Saba Saba rally cancelled
03 July 2014, 08:06
Nairobi – A religious women group dubbed Triangle Prayer Network (TPN) has opposed CORD’s planned Saba Saba rally scheduled for 7 July, 2014.
According to CORD, they will hold the rally to engage the public in addressing challenges the country is facing if the government defies their call for national dialogue.
However, the TPN Chairlady, Joyce Kanuli said all Kenyans are aware of current problems the country is facing adding that unity among political leaders is needed for amicable resolutions.
“We all need to come together as women, mothers, youths and leaders of this nation to address challenges facing our country. We call upon the First Lady, Margret Kenyatta, Idda Odinga, Racheal Ruto, and Mrs. Wetang’ula among others to be in the forefront of preaching national peace and unity,” said Kanuli.
Kanuli said the national dialogue between the government and opposition is integral in addressing problems the country is faced with but suggested that the talk should be in line with the constitutional provisions.
“We, the mothers of this nation will always crusade for national unity for our children, women, youths and elected leaders. Our youths should not be manipulated by politicians to instigate tribal divisions and conflicts to destroy the nation’s future that depends on them,” cautioned Kanuli.
She revealed that her organization’s effort to reach the senior politician’s wives including the First Lady on the need to preach national unity has been futile despite writing letters to them.
“We have written several letters to our political leaders’ wives who are mothers of this nation like us for need to discuss and preach national unity but there has been no response at all,” said Kanuli.
She added that TPN will launch a nationwide peace and prayer campaign dubbed Peace Torch Caravan by the end of July to seek divine intervention to the problems the country is facing.
