Is History about to repeat itself?

The whole debate on the draft constitution is on the final stretch towards the finish line. The August 4th referendum is being received with mixed reactions, some people are tensed about what will happen before, during and after the referendum. There are reports that people are moving to safer grounds in fear of the worst. As the country draws nearer to the voting date, there are reports on threats and tension.

Is the country going to witness what it did in 2007/08 that led to the horrendous post-election violence in which 1,300 people lost their lives and thousands upon thousands displaced? Why is it that people are hesitant of their own security and moving to safer grounds? What happened to the spirit of brotherhood? What advices do you have for fellow Kenyans during this period?

  1. Lets pray, encourage and preach peace from the prince of peace that we may not scatter into pieces.

  2. The disappointing fact is that the reason Moi and his cronies are saying NO is not for the sake of us Kenyans and our generations after us. There are things I don’t agree with in the constitutions but thinking that my Voting NO will be misconstrued by this group of people I would rather say YES and push for amendments after the referendum with the means provided in the draft constitution.

    I care about the future of this nation and will be on the front line of the seekers of the repealing and amendments to the draft even if it means through
    257.
    (1) An amendment to this Constitution may be proposed by a popularinitiative signed by at least one million registered voters.

    (2) A popular initiative for an amendment to this Constitution may be inthe form of a general suggestion or a formulated draft Bill.

    (3) If a popular initiative is in the form of a general suggestion, thepromoters of that popular initiative shall formulate it into a draft Bill.

    (4) The promoters of a popular initiative shall deliver the draft Bill and the supporting signatures to the Independent Electoral and BoundariesCommission, which shall verify that the initiative is supported by atleast one million registered voters.

    This same selfishness changes the course of where we have anticipated to be as a nation. Countries that we were on the same level with are now becoming major tigers economically globally.

    This could be a chance to change things from the inside while tackling the vices

  3. We should be our brothers keeper during this time. We should go out in large numbers on Aug.4 th & vote either YES or NO, shake hands with our supposed opponents & go home peacefully to await the results. Hate speakers & people who inflame passions & ethnic tensions should be arrested & prosecuted

  4. Greetings all in the name above all names ..Jesus Christ. We the saints are the salt and light and as our Lord and friend Jesus, told us if salt lost it’s taste it’s worthless. Politicians dont have the answers to electoral violence. The church of Christ does. Do to others as you would have them do unto you. Give what you want back. If you want love, be loving. If you want peace, be peaceable. Nobody wants to lose family or property over anything let alone elections/referenda..ergo dont destroy or kill. For we know the devil’s work is to steal, kill and destroy. As far as light goes the church thru the word and men of God has shown the way Kenya should go and absolved itself of blame if flawed law passes. Lets keep praying for the will of God to prevail on 4/8 and keep convincing misled citizens not to sell their birth right- Kenya like esau. Committee of ex have never created a nation, so what they did was academic and pie in the sky. They’re trying to fly a plane with car driving skills. They never listened to the majority. Only Jehovah can build a prosperous nation.

  5. I really appeal to ALL people called in the name of the Lord Jesus, to pray for this nation. it is easy to talk about the constitution and forget to ask God for his will to be done. in many occassions in the bible what people were expecting was not neccessarily the will of God. so my prayer is that after reading the constitution we pray and ask God to direct our hearts towards His will. isnt this what the bible is saying? my fellow saints,we should fight this war not like the world for our batttle is not carnal. even as we discuss with fellow citizens, lets pray that the Lord will direct us all to vote His will.
    Pray with me breathren.

  6. I have an unction that humanity is really seeking for the prince of PEACE though they fall short of mentioning it. That the nation of Kenya now more than ever is seeking for the Prince of peace, and the perfect constitution of God which shall rule this earth during one thousand years of Jesus Rule with the saints which is a whisker away.
    A saint of God who way caught up to heaven and met Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour in the last decade of the 1990s had this to say: JESUS showed him the marriage supper table which was absolutely ready with all the food and drinks, showed him the mansions for the saints which were all complete. The man asked Jesus why then he cant return now. Jesus said, it is the time of the father’s grace when believers who are not right with God need to repent and be ready. That is all the remaining time
    I therefore have this auction from the |Holy Spirit that Christians are only being carried away from the serious matters of preparing to rule on this earth with Jesus Christ for one thousand years and have been distracted to persue the fallen rule and authority of this world which with or without perfect constitutions falls short of God’s divine justice.
    Well the push for a good constitution is not a sin, whoever feels called by God in their hearts to persue a just system and dispensation in kenyan law let them continue. But let them even more persue desire and pray for the repentance of the church and preparation for Jesus’ second coming. For the true desire of those who persue justice and peace is the PRINCE OF PEACE AND THE RULE OF GOD ALMIGHTY. the bible says: When they will bwe saying peace peace then sudden destruction will come uipon them. This applies to all those who shall be busy persuing worldly standards and have forgotten to be always ready to be caught up to meet Jesus in the air. I really dont believe their will be bloodshed, because the tensions and campaigns have not gone for very long. However we need to pray in case some have hidden agendas especially the people mentioning redress on what they so call historical land injustices.

  7. Lets pray and avoid any hate speech,
    let us vote peacefully.
    May God protect our land for this is my prayer

  8. WAKENYA… SISI TU WATU WA TAIFA MOJA NA TUSIKUBALI KUTENGWA AU KUTENGANISHWA NA LOLOTE LILE. KWA AJILI YA TAIFA HILI TUKUFU TEULE TUTAMBUE KIPO KILELE BWANA AMETUITIA.

BWANA YU KARIBU NA WALE WALIITALO JINA LAKE… OMBI LANGU KAMA MKENYA, NA MCHA MUNGU NI TUWAPENDE HATA NA WALE WASOKUA NA NIA KAMA YETU NA TUOMBE BWANA ATUPE AMANI HASWA NDANI YA MAISHA YETU NDIPO TUWE NA AMANI M’MOJA KATI YA MWENGINE.

    NA AMANI YA BWANA WETU YESU KRISTO IPITAYO FAHAMU ZOTE IWALINDE NYOTE WAKATI HUU.

    TUMTUKUZE MUNGU.

  9. The constitution has brought a very tense air in this nation again barely three years when Kenya was almost being given to the ‘dogs’. I appeal to my fellow Kenyans to uphold their christian values since we are 70% plus Christians. There will be Kenya after the referendum, that is you and me living together, doing business together, going to church together and attending school together.

    Go out my fellow Kenyan, vote and then accept the people’s verdict, please let us be united for a common purpose God bless Kenya.

    Your brother Peter Otieno Okwe

  10. Praise be to God and our Lord Jesus Christ,the one who sustains all things by the word of his power,i urge all believers every where and especially all intercessors to know this is the time to put on strength and uphold this nation before God as the nation implements the new constitution.please know.the word of the lord has not changed,what he hated yesterday,he hates even today.so please lets look up to him for direction for our nation.let your light shine in darkness at all time in season and out of season
