Kalule Flavia's on the 7th Kenya National Prayer Breakfast.


‘The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level
Of thinking we were at when we created them.’
Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

This is the solely significant reason that promptly saw hundreds of the world’s intellectuals gallantly converged at the prestigious Safari Park Hotel and Casino in Nairobi to change. December 2007 dealt our brothers, the Kenyans, a huge blow, the wrath of God, or rather, of human beings, poured outright the greatest of human follies; ‘Intolerance’ and thus obnoxiously obscuring any rational thinking that man was preloaded with in the beginning of the world.

Amidst a sumptuous breakfast and a lovely weather, beautiful and magnificent words were displayed as, together, with Kenya’s elite Parliamentarians, contemplated and deliberated on how to pick up the remains of Kenya during the 2007 Presidential Elections that resulted into lots of bloodshed due to the intolerance on the part of the Kikuyu and the Luo tribesmen.

A certain saying states that,

‘What gives life to people is hope,
While what kills them is despair.’

Due to the desperation that engulfs several of the world’s learned countrymen, people lose their lives, economies tumble down and relationships are disintegrated. The Chief Guest for the day , His Excellency, Paul Kagame of the Republic of Rwanda , in his words, advised Kenyans to get past the differences they harbor and work towards building their country back to prosperity dwelling on the Rwandan experience where genocide limitlessly destroyed them. He further emphasized the fact that ‘Kenya cannot afford to fail’ since it is a strong nation. With that in mind, Fethullah Gulen’s words, a religious leader from Turkey, one of the world’s top 20 intellectuals, come to life;

‘Be so tolerant that your heart becomes wide like the ocean.
Become inspired with faith and love for others.’

Conclusively,the progressed with various talks, interactions and self assessment discussions all heading towards the revival of the dignity, authority and strong brotherliness of Kenya and at a different level of thinking this time round.
