An NGO is engaging elders from 18 counties to preach peace ahead of the elections. The elders come from the Kuria, Luhya, Kisii, Pokomo, Gikuyu, Luo and Mijikenda communities, among others. Trust for Indigenous Culture and Health director Maryanne Burris said they will train the elders. She addressed the press at Mlolongo town in Machakos county yesterday. Burris said the initiative, to be rolled out in all the 47 counties, will promote national cohesion and integration during and after the elections.
