Kenya is set to play host to the World Summit of NGOs in May 2022, barely two months before the county goes to the polls in August.

At the same time, a delegation of NGO officials from Botswana will visit Nairobi this April on a benchmarking tour which is expected to climax into an exchange of mutually beneficial protocols between the two countries.

The information was disclosed during a National Executive Board Meeting at the NGO’s Council of Kenya head office in Nyayo house last week during which 18 speakers outlined the NGO council blueprint for the year, reflecting on successes and challenges in the post-Covid-19 era.

Members noted that the country was still prone to election-related violence underscoring the need for consistent peace campaigns in the Sustained Development Goals (SDG) that members noted was critical toward free fair and verifiable elections

The daylong meeting was presided over by council chairman Stephen Cheboi, they discussed wide-ranging issues touching on peace building drives to forestall possible post-election violence, the question of climate change, and the threat to peaceful elections by hardliners hiring goons to disrupt rallies by rival political aspirants. Members noted that the country was still prone to election-related violence underscoring the need for consistent peace campaigns in the Sustained Development Goals (SDG) that members noted was critical toward free fair and verifiable elections.

Mr Cheboi urged members to take advantage of training sessions on peace building ventures, alternative thinking in communication, empowering youth and sensitization against violent campaigns ahead of the August general elections, he also urged the media to give a blackout to leaders preaching hatred and divisions to secure the peace the country is enjoying. He warned against a zero-sum approach to politics saying the country will be here long after all of us are gone.
