A Peace walk around the streets of Thika Town Monday morning ushered the Peace One Day celebrations.
As part of the international movement, Peace One Day Thika Forum walked around singing peace songs and appealing to The populace to uphold peace within themselves, the family, the society, in the country and the world in general. The event saw a number of them wear peace signs on T-shirts and even their arms.

The exercise kicked off some minutes past 10:00am at the International Professional Counseling Centre (IPCC) housed within the CBD. It was flagged off by Thika Peace One C.E.O. Mr Alex Maina and his deputy Madam Susan Gitau.

Holding banners and fliers bearing the message of peace, the participants who were drawn from various learning institutions, youth groups and the members of public engaged the people of Thika Town through song and dance to drive their message home.
The procession caught most residents unawares and at times stalling business in this busy industrial and commercial hub of Kenya as curious wananchi stopped all what they were doing to catch a glance of the action.

After walking for about 5km, the participants converged at the Eton Hotel where the Peace One Day Thika Forum shared their experiences and how they would bring Peace One Day to themselves and to the nation, starting from Thika, their home town. The participants heard different readings and presentations on the topic. The organizers said that it was a good way for them to learn to put aside differences and what can be accomplished when they work together.

A whole host of peace ambassadors came forward to support the initiative. Peace One Day 2015 theme asked individuals to work together and make peace with each other to improve the quality of everyone’s lives. Just as Jeremy Gilley said “I’ll be asking young people on Peace Day: Who will you make peace with?...it doesn’t matter how big or small your action is, the fact that you are observing Peace Day has a tremendous impact”.
