This is why Kenyan Churches and Mosques are turning yellow (VIDEO)

Wednesday, November 2, 2016 - Mosques and Churches in Kenya are painting their places of worship yellow as a symbol of unity.

This project dubbed ‘Color in Faith’ has seen several churches and mosques from the crowded streets of Kibera slum to Mombasa painted yellow in an effort to bring together Kenya's religious communities after Somali based militant Al Shabaab threatened to instigate a religious war.

This is a brain child of Columbian-American artist, Yazmany Arboleda, and his Kenyan counterpart, Nabila Alibhai. 

"For me, yellow is the color of the sun and the sun shines above everybody," said Bishop Rose Mungafu whose church in Mombasa recently partnered with the local Muslim community to paint the church yellow.

"We painted together to show our people that we as leaders are together and so Muslims will know Christians are brothers," Mungafu said. 

"Now everyone who passes by will know we are in peace."
