Nairobi, 31 October, 2022 / 6:24 pm (ACI Africa).
The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Kisii in Kenya has called on politicians in the East African nation to come to terms with the fact that the general elections ended and to focus on uniting Kenyans regardless of their ethnic backgrounds.
Bishop Joseph Mairura Okemwa who was speaking at the end of the Eucharistic celebration to mark the Episcopal Golden Jubilee of Bishop Philip Sulumeti emphasized the need to focus on what is common between human persons.
“The elections are over; we do not have to talk about the political divisions now. Bring all Kenyans together,” Bishop Mairura told politicians present at the October 29 celebration that was held at Bukhungu Stadium of Kakamega County.
“Let us work together,” the Kenyan Catholic Bishop said and added, “We are all made of the same stuff and God loves us all.”
He continued, “If you cut a person, the blood does not say the political party they associate with; neither does the blood tell about a person's tribe.”
