Leaders pray for ODM leader’s State House quest
Kisumu leaders, led by Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o, yesterday prayed for ODM leader Raila Odinga, who they said had a higher chance of being the country’s fifth president.
The leaders flocked Power of Jesus Christ Around the World Church to pray for Raila, who has already launched his bid for president under the Azimio La Umoja movement.
“We have an appointment with destiny. We have waited for the country’s leadership for years and the time has come,” said Nyong’o (pictured).
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cousin, Elizabeth Thuiya and Bishop Gathani Kirima prayed for the Head of State and Raila. They said if it were not for the Handshake, Kenya would have not been at peace. Archbishop Washington Ngede set the pace when he interceded for Raila, asking Kenyans to support his fifth stab at the presidency. Bishops Ngede and Julius Oloo, who led the prayers for the Azimio leadership, rued bloodshed after elections and asked Kenyans to tolerate one another. “We are praying for peace and tranquility to prevail in this country,” said Ngede. Present were MPs Aduma Owuor (Nyakach), Nominated MP Rose Nyamunga, Kisumu Deputy Governor Mathews Owili, Assembly Speaker Elisha Oraro and Azimio Nyanza coordinator Kennedy Ajwang and a host of Ward Reps.
