Nameless, Eric Wainaina, P-Unit, Atemi, Size 8 and Mejja are set to headline a peace concert on Thursday. Sponsored by Kenya Red Cross, the concert is a big festival dubbed Chagua Peace Festival, and will be held at Uhuru Park in Nairobi.

In commemoration of five years since the signing of the Kenya National Dialogue and Reconciliation (the Koffi Annan) peace accord, Chagua Peace festival is a campaign to sensitise the need for all to preach and maintain peace.

Apart from the commitment to Chagua Peace campaign, the eight presidential candidates have been encouraged to sign up to the Red Cross peace agreement committing to uphold peaceful elections regardless of the outcome. President Kibaki and former President Moi are among the dignitaries invited for the concert.

"In addition, sign ups have been collected in most regions of the country through the Kenya Red Cross branch network.

KRCS is mobilising each branch to hold the February 28 Chagua Peace event to celebrate and commemorate a watershed day of making peace in the country," said Dr Abbas Gullet, the secretary general of the Kenya Red Cross Society.
