In Summary

The past few weeks have been a fluid time for Kenya – and in some way for the East African Community (EAC). The tense waiting period is over. It’s D-Day for Kenyans.

For months now, Tanzanians and the rest of East Africa have been keenly following the developments in Kenya, where their brothers and sisters are choosing new leaders in today’s General Election.

The past few weeks have been a fluid time for Kenya – and in some way for the East African Community (EAC). The tense waiting period is over. It’s D-Day for Kenyans.

So much has been said about the election in Kenya, with many observers and pundits warning of possible violence. In appealing for peace, many have reminded Kenyans of their sad past – the ghost of the bloody aftermath of the 2007 election.

They have a rare moment to redeem themselves and send the message to the world that they are, after all is said and done, a peace loving nation.

The destiny of Kenyans is in the hands of Kenyans. Today, they make it or break it. It’s a day to secure their future.

For this reason, we are hoping and praying that our neighbours not only make the right choice of leaders today, but also do the right thing to ensure there is no violence even after the results do not reflect their wishes.

We wish everyone a credible poll, a stable, and prosperous country.
