Muslim and Christian leaders at the weekend endorsed Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta's presidential bid. The clerics said Uhuru's Jubilee Alliance has policies that will cater for their welfare if it forms the next government.
Speaking separately at Mombasa hotels, the leaders of Coast-based Interfaith Group and Association of Muslims Organisation of Kenya said they chose to back Uhuru because they were short-changed by Prime Minister Raila Odinga after the 2007 general election.
"We have confidence in the Uhuru-led Jubilee government because he has shown in his manifesto that our welfare as Muslims together with our Christian counterparts will be accommodated. We are confident that Uhuru's will be a government of all," said Interfaiths' Rev Nobert Ochanda.
