Calls postelection crisis the "country's little mistake"
Jul 01, 2008
Kenyan president Mwai Kibaki, speaking at a national prayer breakfast, urged his fellow citizens to move on and rebuild their nation, while describing Kenya’s destructive postelection crisis as the “country’s little mistake” that God wanted repaired.
“We must not give up. We must move forward. We shall succeed,” Kibaki said at a May 31 prayer breakfast attended by politicians, religious leaders and others. “Since we believe, let us all forgive each other.”
A political crisis in Kenya erupted after the December 27 national elections in which the incumbent Kibaki was declared winner of the presidential contest, which opposition leader Raila Odinga said was rigged.
