President Uhuru Kenyatta has today asked religious leaders to come together and hold prayers for the country.
The President urged Christian, Muslim and Hindu leaders to organise a national day of prayer for the country to overcome its challenges.
"I will ask religious leaders to come together and pray for this nation, knowing well that any country which is led by God prospers and stands strong," President Kenyatta said.
He spoke when he joined Christians for a Sunday service at the African Christian Churches & Schools (ACCS), in Thika town.
President Kenyatta also urged Kenyans to be vigilant on matters of security as the Government continues to deal with terror threats.
"Kenyans must be on guard as security is a responsibility for all of us. Terrorism is a reality and it is with us. Wherever you are be watchful, at the market place, schools and even in public transport, when you see any item left unattended or suspicious people alert the security agents," Uhuru said.
He assured Kenyans that the Jubilee Government will continue serving all citizens equally irrespective of their political, religious or social backgrounds.
"I will stand firm, strong and courageous to serve Kenyans. As Jubilee Government, we will serve Kenyans with all resources to ensure we fulfil our pledges," President Kenyatta said.
Political leaders including MPs, Senators and the Kiambu Governor William Kabogo who attended the service criticised CORD coalition leaders for raising political temperatures in the country saying their actions are disrupting economic activities.
"Leaders should at no time be allowed to incite Kenyans along tribal lines. We will not again allow Kenyans to take the path of mass action and destruction of life and property," said Senate Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki.
After the service, President Kenyatta gave a personal donation of Ksh2 million in aid of the ongoing project of the construction of the schools hostel.
