Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga set to share a podium today – but not for the presidential debate

By KTN News, A.R | July 7th 2017

The main protagonists in this year’s General Elections, contesting for the top job in the country, President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA flagbearer Raila Odinga will today share a podium at a prayer meeting organised by the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya at Uhuru Park.

The prayer meeting whose focus is to pray for peace and democracy coincides with the commemoration of the historic SABA SABA Day.

No one can forget how police clobbered cleric and civil activist Rev. Timothy Njoya. On this same day, the same scenes were witnessed at Kamunkunji Grounds, as supporters of the Opposition got thoroughly beaten by the police as they agitated for democracy reforms.

As Kenyans commemorate this day 20 years on and exactly 31 days to the much anticipated August 8th General Election, Uhuru and Raila will lead other Kenyans in praying for the country.

The two presidential candidates have confirmed their attendance after being contacted in good time by the organisers, who will be seeking commitment to peace among top political contenders in the August elections.
