KENYA: Bishop Calls for End to Governors, Senator’s Supremacy War
ELDORET, February 25, 2014 (CISA) –Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Eldoret, Rt Rev Cornelius Korir has called for an end to supremacy battle involving senators, governors, and members of parliament.
“It is your time to serve and there may be no other, consider that one year is already gone and that is why you should stop wrangling and instead unite Kenyans for development’s sake,” Kenya’s The Standard Newspaper quoted the bishop as saying.
Bishop Korir urged leaders to stop confusing Kenyans and instead work harmoniously for the country’s unity and development.
The prelate who presided over the homecoming ceremony of URP’s Uasin Gishu women representative Ursula Ng’eny on Saturday February 22, reminded politicians how they suppressed the voice of the church that objected to the new constitution.
“You said we pass it and then amend it later so you better carry your cross now because I literally asked for water and washed my hands,” he said.
He reminded them that there was no easy work without prayer and thus urged Kenyans to pray for the unity of the country’s leadership.
Bishop Korir, however wished the leaders well in their reign and equally asked them to pray for the country’s posterity.
