Mombasa clergy have held special prayers for peaceful elections.

Led by Bishop Lambert Mbela of Redeemed church in Mikindani, the clergy cautioned Kenyans against division.

He said Kenyans have lived as brothers and should not let elections divide them.

“We are still brothers at the end of the day, so don’t let politics bring enmity,” he said.

On his part, Jomvu sub-County OCPD Peter Maluki said Police will patrol hot spots during elections to assure residents of their security.

“As at now, things are good. We are monitoring the situation. We will offer adequate security,” he added.

The peace meeting drew pastors from the Mombasa pastors fellowship, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission and Police.
