Here is an email that KDPM received from the leader of a major denomination in Kenya:

Prayer concern for Kenya:

The architects of the ongoing political violence appear determined to push all the buttons they can to turn Kenya on its head. When they are not setting houses on fire or chopping up people from unwanted communities, they are subjecting their victims to rape and sexual harassment.

The Nairobi Women's Hospital reported last week that it had treated 94 children who had been sexually abused. Of the 242 patients, 213 were female and 29 male. Most of those attacked had been gang raped. These statistics refer to Nairobi and its environs alone, only our good Lord knows how much damage has been done in other parts of the country. Movements from one town the other have been hampered, it is a challenge.

As if that is not enough, the militia groups have now decided to enforce a dress code for Women. If you wear trousers or mini skirts in Naivasha, Nakuru or Limuru, you do it at a great risk. Women in those areas have been humiliated, robbed and beaten for exercising their freedom of choice. Not only that, they are extorting money from the public vehicles and from individuals as security fee on a daily basis.

It is our prayer that the Koffi Anan talks will bear fruits for our lovely country. There is alot lawlessness being experienced in most parts of the country.
