COVID-19 in the Global South | Mennonite World Conference

Speaking during morning devotion at Homabay church, ACK arch-bishop reverent Simon Onyango, call upon the president William Ruto and and opposition leader Raila Odinga to have have peaceful talk between them and come up with ways of reducing high cost of living standard in the republic.

''I call upon our president William Ruto and Raila Odinga through the mercy of Almighty God to come together and have have a talk. We don't want to see another blood shed in our country due to strikes and demonstrations organised by our political leaders.'' Simon stated.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga organised a grand mega rally on 20th March, calling on his supporters to come out and match towards the state house, challenging the government on the high cost of basic commodities.

''Strikes and demonstrations won't solve anything. Dialog and reconciliation is the best way to chat things out. Our country need peace and what the opposition leaders are organising can bring destruction in our country.'' Simon added.

Notably, the clergy board also requested a talk between the two leaders before the mega rally organised by the opposition leaders.
