The country's national prayers were held today, and the retiring incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is spending his final term in office under the 2010 Kenyan Constitution, was there. Deputy President Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto, Azimio's running partner Senior Council Martha Karua, Attorney General, Chief Justice Martha Koome, and other prominent politicians, leaders, and religious were among the attendees.
But it was Chief Justice Martha Koome's request to God during the national prayer breakfast that got Kenyans talking and startled. During the national prayer, Chief Justice Martha Koome reportedly prayed the Almighty God to'smoke out those who will steal elections,' according to Citizen TV Kenya. Chief Justice Martha Koome made history when she became Kenya's first female Chief Justice, succeeding retired Chief Justice David Maraga.
"In a national prayer, CJ Koome asks God to'smoke out those who will steal elections.'" Citizen TV Kenya tweeted this.
