Eldoret, 27 June, 2023 / 9:45 pm (ACI Africa).
The peace initiative that members of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) are to launch has an objective of facilitating the transformation of factors behind conflict and “curb the perennial violence” in the country’s North Rift region covered by six Catholic Dioceses.
In a Monday, June 26 press release, Catholic Bishops in Kenya say that the initiative seeks to “bring together the six Catholic Dioceses to address the root causes of conflict in the North Rift Region.”
“The initiative aims to bring together peace-building actors in the region to curb the perennial violence and join forces in transforming the underlying conflict drivers,” KCCB members say about the project that involves the Catholic Dioceses of Eldoret, Nakuru, Nyahururu, Kitale, Maralal, and Lodwar.
They add, “Through the initiative, the Dioceses will create synergies for peacebuilding through advocacy, learning, and collaboration.”
