In a joint pre-election statement, said they were keenly following preparations for the 9 August 2022 general elections by all stakeholders in Kenya, including the campaign activities of political parties, party coalitions, and candidates.

The leaders also called upon those with a specific mandate to conduct their responsibilities with utmost diligence and transparency; as well as compliance with the legal framework of Kenya and the country’s international obligations and commitments for democratic elections.
They urged all stakeholders and citizens to pursue any grievances that may occur peacefully and through the established legal channels.
