Post election violence at the end of April which led to at least four deaths, resulted in many of the opposition supporters being held under house arrest for almost six weeks. Supporters then organized protests that turned violent. Around thirty security forces were seriously injured, and then the police opened fire on the protestors. Pray that peace will return. Pray that the president and his government will make more space for the opposition parties to have a voice (The Bible, Proverbs 18:13).
