Kakamega, 14 October, 2022 / 9:20 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Bishop in Kenya has urged the President William Ruto-led government that was inaugurated last month to “work together” with members of the opposition in addressing issues affecting citizens of the East African nation.
Bishop Joseph Obanyi Sagwe of the Catholic Diocese of Kakamega who was presiding over the official opening of the multipurpose hall at the Holy Family Lubao Parish of his Episcopal See cautioned the Kenyan government and the opposition against engaging in a blame game and instead aim to “deliver for Kenyans”.
“Both the government and the opposition should work together in addressing issues that are paramount to the citizens,” Bishop Obanyi said during the Wednesday, October 12 event.
He added, “Five years is a short period and there is no time for boasting; everyone has a job to do, whether you were elected or not; there is no time for blame game; it is time to deliver for Kenyans.”
The Kenyan electorate voted for their President, Governors, Senators, Women representatives, Members of Parliament (MPs), and Members of County Assemblies (MCAs) on August 9.
