Kenya’s Supreme Court on Monday unanimously upheld President Uhuru Kenyatta’s election victory in a rerun vote that was held in October.

Following this ruling, Kenyatta is expected to be sworn on November 28.

Before all this happened, the country hosted top American songwriter and Christian music producer, Donald ‘Don’ Moen, who landed days before his performance on 11 November at Christ Is The Answer Ministries in Karen, an affluent suburb of Nairobi.

By Press time, social media was still stirred up over what Don Moen wore as he appeared on stage to lead multitudes into worship. Press report that Don Moen entrusted his wad-rope with a popular designer, Carol Pulei, who came to the limelight after designing president Uhuru Kenyatta’s attire during the Jubilee Party’s National Delegates Convention in May.

Carol Pulei designed President Kenyatta in a red and white African shirt, and amazingly did the same design for Don Moen.

For Moen’s look however, Pulei only changed the embroidery design to a blue color, staying away from Jubilee Party’s red color that she uses on the President’s shirts.

This drew mixed reactions from Kenyans.

That aside, the concert itself  united political rivals to one platform.

“It was a concert that brought out the best in our politicians,” reported Standard Media Kenya.

The totally sold out event was also graced by other artistes among them Mercy Masika, The Worship Factory, Adawnage Band and Rebekah Dawn.

In his speech, the 66-year-old singer, who came with a crew of eight, called on Kenyans to be united.

“Many other countries are also facing similar issues and there is need to stay united,” Don said

He prayed for the country over the political stalemate and also took the chance to dispel rumours that he had divorced his wife of 44 years, Laura.

“I am still happily married and love my wife who has been a great support to my ministry,” he said.
