    “Met with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby who called on me at State House, Nairobi. Archbishop Justin Welby was accompanied by The Most Rev. Jackson Ole Sapit, Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya,” the statement read.

    At the meeting at State House, Archbishop Welby congratulated President Kenyatta following his victory in the October 26 fresh presidential election and prayed for Kenya to remain peaceful and stable.

    “I encourage Kenyans to reconcile, maintain peace and remain united,” Archbishop Welby stated.
