They included Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) presidential candidate Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Jubilee Coalition flag bearer Uhuru Kenyatta, Narc-Kenya’s Martha Karua, Restore and Build Kenya candidate James Ole Kiyiapi, Eagle Alliance Peter Kenneth and Alliance for Real Change (ARK) candidate Abduba Dida and a host of running mates.

However, UDF’s Musalia Mudavadi and Safina’s Paul Muite missed the function.

Speaking at the forum, the 5 men and a woman seeking the country’s top job pledged to maintain peace before, during and after general elections pledging that they will concede defeat after the polls if God chooses a leader for Kenya.

Raila declared he would not edge out his competitors if he wins the poll.

“If we win, we will work with the others so that all Kenyans feel inclusive. It will not be a government of the winner takes it all,” Raila said.

ARK’s Abduba Dida said that true repentance was based on justice. He urged those accused to have grabbed other people’s property to return and seek forgiveness from God.

On his part Peter Kenneth said “Kenyans are a peaceful people and no leader should ever again divide Kenyans on the basis of tribe, ethnicity, race or creed.”

Former Eldoret North MP William Ruto said the jubilee team was formed on the basis of uniting two warring factions and they are dedicated to reconcile Kenyans.

“We will unite all Kenyans who were enemies in the past elections, so that we can reconcile them and build a united country for all,” Jubilee Deputy Presidential candidate William Ruto said.

Uhuru Kenyatta vowed to maintain peace and preach unity among Kenyans before and after the polls.

“I will keep peace and I will implore on my followers to keep peace too,” declared Uhuru.
