Nairobi, 26 January, 2022 / 8:40 pm (ACI Africa).
The leadership of an organization of Christian professionals in Kenya is urging politicians in the East African nation to engage them in their political campaigns ahead of the August 2022 general elections.
In a statement issued Tuesday, January 25, officials of the Kenya Christian Professionals Forum (KCPF) call on all workers who profess the Christian faith to take practical steps to pursue excellence and transformation “that reflects Jesus Christ our model.”
“Be open to engaging professionals to assist you in rolling out your campaigns, and ensure you set aside funds to pay them promptly and adequately for services received,” KCPF officials say in the statement issued at the end of this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU).
KCPF officials further urge Kenyan politicians to set aside funds in case they will need to engage professionals such as lawyers for post electoral services.
“Professionals will not be ready to provide competent services based on unmet promises for future payment,” members of the ecumenical organization that is backed by members of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) say.
