"Our prayers have been answered!". The Kenyan faithful, happy for the unexpected meeting between the president and the leader of the opposition. This was the headline of a few days ago's report from Nairobi by the agency Fides, of the Pontifical Mission Societies.

"The meeting between President Uhuru and NASA leader Raila Odinga is the fruit of the prayer for peace that Catholics and other Christians have been praying for during Lent. I believe that President Uhuru and Raila can be symbolic figures of the beginning of the healing of the nation." said Misericordia Lanya, a Catholic faithful in Nairobi's Umoja parish.

Another person, Eveline Shitabule, of Holy Angels Parish in Lutonyi, Kakamega Diocese, western Kenya, has pointed out: "This is the latest miracle to take place in Kenya; we have prayed for peace in our country and God has answered our prayers."

In early March, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta held a surprise meeting in Nairobi with his political rival, National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga. The two leaders appeared together before the nation and declared their determination to work together to heal the wounds and reconcile Kenyans.
