Members of the Duke and Durham communities gathered last week to remember victims of the post-election violence in Kenya and pray for resolution.
Peter Nyangweso, a University of North Carolina graduate student from Kisii, Kenya was among those in attendance. He offered his thanks to the Duke WISER student group for organizing the vigil:
“…[W]ords alone cannot say enough how so very touched we are that you were able to put the Kenyan people in your prayers.
We try so hard to smile outwardly but inwardly we are so sad–all Kenyans are, many Ugandans, many Tanzanians, Rwandans, Burundians, Congolese, Southern Sudanese, Ethiopians and Somalis are so sad, worried and feel homeless and helpless because the only place they run to or could run to is threatened.
Your prayers and support mean so much, especially now. Please, if there is anything I can do to help with any of your events–let me know.” — Peter Nyangweso
