President Uhuru Kenyatta hosted a prayer service at State House which brought together leaders from across the political divide and different religious affiliations.
Leaders at the prayer service included Deputy President William Ruto; former Prime Minister Raila Odinga; Cabinet Secretaries; Speakers of the National Assembly and the Senate; Council of Governors Chairman Wycliffe Oparanya; Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli; Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi among others
“I know there are those who are saying that we should depend on science not prayers but I want to assure you that even science needs God. We need to always remember that a nation prospers when a nation believes and trusts in its maker,” he said.
“Today is our day as Kenyans, a day we have chosen to come together to give thanks for all that God has done for us, seek His forgiveness for anything we may have done wrong individually and collectively, to ask for His favor in the face of the challenges that we have,” the President added.
