On the 5th of August, the first collective solidarity praying for Kenyans will take place in Germany. Organized by Kenyans United, it is about to happen in six German cities as Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Munich and Wurzburg. The aim is to pray for the up-coming parliamentary elections on the 08th of August in Kenya in order to set a symbolic solidarity towards the Kenyan population back home.

Participants are asked for praying for peaceful, fair and transparent election procedures and results. As in the last years, several riots occurred as a response to said-to be corrupt election results in December 2007. Since then, an estimated amount of 1.200 people were killed and around 600.000 fled their homes.

There is a shared fear of possible up-coming riots now among most Kenyans again. Praying together is an attempt to think of and send good wishes to people back home in Kenya who are currently in potential danger. Pastors from Kenyan churches all over Germany are leading the collective praying from 1 to 9pm.
