Kenyans held the nation together, before the March 4th General Election and during the polls. They must continue holding it together, after the announcement of the presidential election results. May the winner be sore enough to appreciate the loser's worthiness and may the loser be hearty enough to recognise the winner's opportunity to serve Kenyans.
Emotions and political posturing might blur the bigger picture of national interests but sobriety must be allowed to reign, in order to refocus the competitive politics on the greater good of uniting the country.
The local and international media must not be 'misused' to cultivate a morbid climate of anxiety, however high the political stakes climb.
Supporters of opposing camps should not be easily swayed or inflamed towards considering loss of life and destruction of property, as viable options of making a political point.
And may the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission remain fair, accurate and impartial, to the very end, so that the next Kenyan president is universally acceptable.
