Things are going really badly over there. A friend just sent me this message.
Unfortunately we have not have been that great in Kenya. The elections which started so peacefully have disintegrated into chaos. there have been several deaths so far, burning of property, looting, just overall chaos. The electoral commision somehow declared the previous president as winner despite it being very clear from earlier on that his opponent was leading. The EU observers have voiced their concerns about the apparent rigging. The president was sworn in almost immediately; and subsequently the media have been banned from broadcasting anything.
Rumours are rife about what’s happening meanwhile and about the safety and fate of the main competitor of the incumbent; nobody knows what’s happening as a result of the ban on the media. Please pray for Kenya. We are all so shocked coz this is not how things have been in Kenya, we’ve been so peaceful and law-abiding but these past few days have been crazy. Please pray for us.
