Prayers worked – Kenyans voted in peace
Kenyans voted in peace today. I have spoken to our staff in Kenya, and have been following the news all day. There was violence in Mombasa but it does not appear to be related to the election. It was truly inspiring to see how many Kenyans voted today! Many lined up starting at 3:30 am and waited for nine hours to vote! There were 30,000 poll watchers from many countries to help ensure peaceful voting. Many are committed to see Kenya does not repeat what happened 5 years ago.
Now is the critical time. The fear is there may be violent responses when the winner is announced. For there to be a winner the candidate must have over 50% of the vote. If no candidate receives a majority vote there will be a run-off vote April 11. I understand there could be an announcement in the next few hours.
Praying for peace throughout Kenya as the election results are announced….Connie Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
