The PEV Photo Exhibition and Dialogue scheduled for Dandora 1 on 8th and 9th May 2010 received a boost with President Mwai Kigenyi Mwai Kshs 7,955.00, Mr. Elijah Agevi pledging Kshs 1,000.00 in support, Mr. Aurelio Rebelo [ ] pledged a support of Kshs 5,000.00 which he is sending to me and Mr. Evans Machera who sent us Kshs 1,000.00 yesterday.
This is very encouraging and it confirms to us that, YES, we can do it ourselves. We can all join hands and contribute little by little to advance the need for Peace, National Healing and Reconciliation. Even as we campaign for our various positions on the envisaged constitution, we must all know that Kenya and Kenyans come first.
Let not our friendship as a people be compromised by our personal inclinations. Let us debate the constitution soberly and with facts. At the end of the day, we will remain neighbours, brothers, sisters, and colleagues. So, let us campaign for Peace as we campaign for either YES or NO.
The need for Peace, National Healing and Reconciliation in Kenya needs to be made an issue at our individual levels. When we have conflict, it is us who loose out; it is us who get killed; it is our property that gets destroyed; it is our people that get displaced; it is our sisters and mothers that we rape; it is our children that suffer.
So, as we thank Mr. Rebelo and the other Friends of KCDN who have since given us support, we want to appeal for more financial support to make this day happen. We are on our own and YES, we can do it.
So far, a few people have responded to our call and given us their support as follows;
- Mr. Samson Olendo Kshs 10,000.00
- President Mwai Kigenyi Mwai Kshs 7,955.00
- Ms Abida Chiera from the US Kshs 5,213.00
- Mr. Aurelio Rebelo Kshs 5,000.00 [Pledge]
- Mr. Evans Machera Kshs 1,000.00
- Mr. Elijah Agevi Kshs 1,000.00
- Mr. John Onyango Kshs 900.00
- Mr. Nick Oyugi Kshs 500.00
- Mr. Richard Ochola Kshs 500.00.
