    We must never again allow our country to go into the dark days of the PEV. Every Kenyan, young or old, has a role to play to ensure a peaceful Kenya. Kenya is one. We have nowhere else to go.

      I hope some leaders would listen to what you’re saying… Some of them seem to remember PEV just like it was a game because at the end of the day they didn’t get affected in any personal way. And with their loads of money, they can still convince a few hooligans to cause mayhem.
      God be with us…
