Kenyan diaspora sends open letter to all Kenyans back at home

By Kenyan Diaspora | Jul 13th 2017 | 2 min read

Dear Kenyans,

We Kenyans residing outside Kenya for obvious reasons, are proud of our heritage and our motherland. Like those before you, you are personally a custodian of this land and country for the future generations, be peaceful as you prepare, vote and realize the loss or win of the candidates of your choice.

No matter the outcome and disappointment, DO NOT attack anybody. The results of 2007/2008 riots are vivid and must not be repeated. The politicians were and will be protected by security paid for by you; think about it, what about you?

To preserve your life, our country, and our heritage, we urge you to heed the following before, during and after Election Day:

Maintain peace at all time to preserve your life and those of your fellow Kenyans.

Keep our country and all property safe from any destruction.

There is only one Kenya whose citizen is Kenyan. The youth, you are our future give us peace.


Sing our national anthem once a week to remind you our creed and believe in it.

Politicians should start all meetings with our national anthem and explain its purpose.

IEBC leaders, learn from your predecessors. Be independent, fair and neutral in carrying out fair and credible elections.

Preserve PEACE in the country.

As Kenyans you must coexist peacefully as one people in one nation. No single individual is greater than our collective unit to deserve sacrifice of lives.

Politicians will come and go, you will remain and so will Kenya, it is a secret ballot, choose wisely and avoid violence. Be Peaceful and help preserve our country.

We in the Diaspora are with you for a peaceful and prosperous Kenya.

Thank you
