KISUMU, KENYA: Kenya has only one chance to avert violence that might rock the country after elections, self-proclaimed prophet Edward David Owuor has said.

Owuor said God has spoken to him and revealed there will be violence after the March 4 elections if Kenyans do not repent.

The clergy said as the country entered the New Year, it was faced with greater challenge following ugly incidences in the past year.

Owuor gave examples of the first and second killings in Baragoi and Tana Delta, confusion in Garissa attacks and Eastleigh blasts as indications of more blood that would be shed after the General Election if Kenyans do not repent.

“We are in a slippery place and only God can save us,” said Prophet Owuor.

He said Kenya was in a time of tempest and mayhem and the leaders should come out and heal it before it burns again.

He told President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga to organise an urgent national healing, reconciliation and repentance meeting at Uhuru Park, Nairobi that will bring everyone back to God to prevent Kenya from burning.

Addressing thousands of faithful who attended the three-day prayer meeting in Kisumu, Owuor said attendance of the meeting showed a healing process for the nation.

He also warned Kenyan leaders against empty rhetoric that only poisoned Kenyans against each other. The gathering saw many faithful healed who testified of their miracles.
