Kenyan church leaders will be led by the United Clergy Alliance, Restoration, and Empowerment umbrella in a walk during the event to be held on 29th October.
The group will pray for peace, rain, and prosperity in Kenya. The walk will start from the former US Embassy Bomb blast area on Moi Avenue to Jeevanjee Gardens in Nairobi.
Nairobi Pastors Peaceful Walk To Pray for Drought
The prayer is due to drought that has ravaged most parts of the country. Participants in the walk include friends of Kenya from Tanzania under Prophet Geordavie.
Geordavie is expected to visit Kenya later this year. Thus, his followers' participation in the Nairobi peace walk will be in solidarity with Kenyans suffering from the ongoing severe drought.
The participants will also pray for President William Ruto's new administration to be given the strength by God to overcome all of Kenya's issues and lead the nation to greater prosperity, according to Bishop Francis Mulinge, Chairman of the United Clergy Alliance.
This comes at a time when people in over 20 counties in Kenya stare starvation as reports from the meteorological department said there are hot and dry weather conditions coupled with five consecutive failed rain seasons.
Pastoralists in parts of Rift Valley and Northern Kenya stare at feeble cows with rib cages protruding from their sides.
The insecurity in the country is getting worse. First, the government had 23 counties on high alert due to drought. Later, the number went up to 29 counties in distress, with 10 out of the 29 classified as being in acute danger.
The Kenya Red Cross has been part of the relief efforts and classified counties undergoing drought into two categories: those on alert and those where there is an alarm.
Counties labeled as alert zone are counties with drought. However, they can still survive for some days, while those in the alarm region are in imminent danger and need assistance to supplement families' feeding programs.
According to the Red Cross, the counties at the alert stage include Nyeri, Garissa, Kitui, Kwale, Makueni, Embu, Meru, Narok, Taita Taveta, and Kilifi.
Those at the alarm stage include Mandera, Samburu, Isiolo, Kajiado, Tharaka Nithi, Turkana, Tana River, Wajir, Laikipia, and Marsabit.
