- "The clergy have to go down on their knees to ensure the country has a peaceful transition after the 2022 general election," he said.
Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has urged religious leaders to pray for the nation as the general election nears.
“The clergy have to go down on their knees to ensure the country has a peaceful transition after the 2022 general election,” he said.
Malala said it has become a Kenyan culture that after every election cycle, innocent Kenyans lose their lives for no reason.
“Kenyans need to style up by adopting politics that unite the nation and preaching peace as this country is greater than any politician,” he said.
The senator spoke on Saturday in Sabatia, Vihiga county.
Malala drummed up support for ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, saying he is the best candidate to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
He dismissed claims that the 2022 presidential election will be a two-horse race, saying that “a limping horse has no power to win the race against a healthy donkey”.
He said those saying the race will be between Deputy President William Ruto and ODM chief Raila Odinga will be surprised next year.
“Mudavadi don’t disappoint us. We want you on the ballot and we are going to ensure that you get enough votes here in western and other parts of the country,” Malala said.
