Conflicts have hit headline of the media houses and particularly the plight of Africa seems to dominate international meetings and conferences. Yet, the solution to these problems seems to be distant. The question remains "why". This book tries to examine peace initiative and some of the challenges faced in the process of searching for peace. The book starts by examining obstacles to peace and identifies some of these obstacles and how they mediate the conflict and peace process in Africa. The second section of this book explores the contribution of Kenya to Peace processes in Africa. In this regard, he focuses on Kenya''s foreign policy and its implication on diplomacy with special emphasis on ‘the diplomacy of conflict management''. The third section of this book looks at Kenya as a country polarized by low intensity conflict that exploded to countrywide violence in 2007. It is against this background that Magero consolidates the church''s role in preserving the community hence calling for concerted inter-religious effort in building national cohesion.
