Nairobi, 29 August, 2020 / 2:14 pm (ACI Africa).
At the Eucharistic celebration organized to mark a decade since the promulgation of Kenya’s Constitution, the Archbishop of Nyeri in the East African country has urged the citizenry to use the Supreme Law of the Land as a guide for establishing a set of “higher and more noble goals.”
“We wish to plead that these laws and embodiment of a common course, be a guide for higher and more noble goals,” Archbishop Anthony Muheria said Thursday, August 27 during the commemoration Mass at the Holy Family Minor Basilica in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.
The set of higher and noble goals include “the flourishing of goodness, the space for individual right action, harmonious and peaceful living, prosperity and human development, the respect for the most sacred, and the defense of the weak and vulnerable in society,” Archbishop Muheria outlined.
He noted that Kenya’s Constitution, which was promulgated on August 27, 2010, “should enable us to rise from the bondage of our individual interests, evil tendencies, and social ills like Tribalism, Corruption, Nepotism and discriminations.”
“We still must make it effective, imbued by Godly sense, to create a true fraternal and fair society,” the 57-year-old Kenyan Prelate said, adding, “It is not an instrument for manipulation, nor to hide our mischief or nor facilitate it.”
