    The rally is part of the commission’s series of rallies to promote peaceful coexistence during the election period.

    Nakuru’s concert will be the first-ever peace concert organized by the peace ambassadors in conjunction with United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the European Union (EU). 

    NCIC chair Rev. Samuel Kobia led a peace caravan that traversed the county where the commission’s officials and entertainers engaged locals on the need to promote a peaceful process.

    He urged the residents to be vigilant in defending peace and advocating for a peaceful electioneering period. 

    The commission has been at the forefront in advocating for harmony among Kenya of all divides as mandated by the constitution. 

    Kenyans will head to the polls on Tuesday, August 9, to vote for a new government. 

    In contention for the presidential seat are Raila Odinga of the Azimio La Umoja, William Ruto of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Roots Party's George Wajackoyah and Waihiga Mwaure of the Agano Party.
