Crown Paints Kenya Ltd, launched a peace campaign dubbed UNITING COLOURS OF KENYA. The UNITING COLOURS OF KENYA campaign is a bottom up approach in building peaceful Kenya driven by the Kenyans. The company hopes to build a movement that supports peace initiatives within the local communities. The campaign revolved around a microsite where participants can post their peace messages, pictures or videos.
We all don’t want to see what happened in 2008 to repeat itself this year and for that I encourage all Kenyans to participate on this great initiative. To participate, put on your creative cap and upload original pictures, videos, messages and quotes promoting peace in your community. The campaign will be running throughout the election period,
And the creativity will not go unrewarded. Each day, there will be a giveaway of Ksh. 1000 worth of airtime as a reward to the most creative upload. The entry will also automatically qualify for the grand draw where the cash price for the winner will be Ksh. 100,000. First runners up will receive Ksh. 70,000, and Ksh. 40,000 for the second runners up. On top of that, the most creative messages will be printed on giveaway T-shirts.
At the end it is not about the money or the reward one get from participating in peace initiative like this, but it is about ensuring that Kenya remains stable and prosperous nation. We saw the test of what chaos can do to a country in 2008 and I think we should never head on that direction again.
The other day I attended an event where the Acting Police Spokesperson Mr.Charles Owino gave a speech on the behalf of Inspector General. According to him the Kenyan Police Force are ready to protect the Kenyan democratic process and to ensure peaceful coexistence of people before, during and after the elections. That was great to hear but in the end, peace will not be build by the police but by the people themselves. It should be within the DNA of Kenyans to be peaceful and I think it has been the case in many ways.
