Ruben FM in conjunction with Ruben Centre,peace building organizations, schools, political aspirants and all like-minded organizations held a peace event preceded by a caravan dubbed “Mukuru 4 Peace’’ in the month of June 2017.
The past elections held on March 2013 were celebrated as ‘peaceful’ and ‘successful’ by international observers and diplomats likewise but Kenyans described the electoral experience as one of ‘tense calm’ or ‘unstable peace.’
The 2013 General Elections proceeded without mass violence, a significant advance in light of the country’s recent electoral history. Some Kenyans were hesitant to credit peace building efforts for this relative success and expressed concern about high levels of ethnic tensions, hate speech, voter bribery and intimidation throughout the electoral period, in some parts of Kenya and Nairobi.
