Kenya is experiencing a “stormy weather” amid intensifying political campaigns ahead of August 9 general elections with politicians exchanging “ungodly words”, a Catholic Archbishop in the East African country has said, and called on political leaders to sacrifice their ego for peace.
Archbishop Anthony Muheria who was speaking at the 19th National Prayer Breakfast compared favorably the mood in the country to a “badly” smoking vehicle and that “Kenya needs an oil change, Kenya needs an oil change”.
“Like the disciples in the Sea of Galilee, we find ourselves facing stormy weather. We see elections coming, and it is a storm brewing,” Archbishop Muheria said during the Thursday, May 26 event that took place at the Senate Grounds in Kenya’s Parliament.
The Kenyan Catholic Bishop said that said the “stormy weather” Kenya is experiencing has been occasioned by “rising exchange of ungodly words and incitements.”
“The ship of each one of us, the ship of the average Kenyan is being roped by anxiety; it is being irritated by the character of our politics, by our leadership, a leadership that claims to be people of God, people of faith, God fearing but yet we are roped,” he said.
