Good News Church of Africa (GNCA) Bishop Raphael Nzuki Kituva has urged Kenyans to let reason prevail and accept the outcome of the recent General Election.

Speaking to journalists at his Mutomo office, the spiritual leader said the country risked plunging into post election violence if rival parties continue contesting the election results especially regarding the presidential seat which has raised temperatures.

He said Kenya cannot withstand or survive another bout of election-borne violence given how far the 2007/08 post election violence took the country back economically and led to loss of over 1,000 lives besides internal displacement of hundreds of thousands of people.

The Bishop also beseeched President elect Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA flag bearer Raila Odinga to preach peace and tolerance amongst their supporters even as the opposition coalition moves to the Supreme Court to contest the presidential election.

He further asked all leaders whether elected or not to work closely and harmoniously with the government of the day for the benefit of the Kenyan citizenry.
