Peace Meeting at Sachangwan on 9th April 2009

Organized and coordinated by Mr. Philip Koech and James Kariuki who have been attending MISCC consultative forum, a grass root peace forum was done at Sachangwan on 9th April 2009. It was attended by approximately 200 people from 16 villages. Participants included the Provincial Administrators, local religious leaders, men, women and the youth. The area Chief Mr Evans Mageto urged Sachangwan residents to live together like brothers and spread the message of peace and reintegration. In the meeting, participants found it necessary to involve youth in peace meetings and events because they participated in the violence more than any other category of people. All agreed that peace is a prerequisite to development.
