The African branch of the International Catholic activist organization, CitizenGo Africa, is calling on the President of Kenya to lift the ban on the registration of new churches that has been in place since 2014.
Kenya’s President, Uhuru Kenyatta met Pope Francis on Friday, November 6 at the Vatican, making him the first Head of State of the East African nation to pay the Holy Father a courtesy visit at the Holy See, the headquarters of the Catholic Church.
Children attending Sunday School and those who go for Madrassas in Mosques are among the groups of congregants who will not be allowed to attend public worship in a new set of directives given by Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta who announced the resumption of public worship in the East African country.
Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has been lauded for veering off contentious themes guiding the ongoing controversial International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD25). However, some participants in the Pro-Life and Family Friendly Side Events have said the President could have been more careful with the use of the expression “reproductive health,” which has evolved over time.
The widely publicized and controversial International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD25) convened to commemorate 25 years since the last convention took place in Egypt’s capital, Cairo kicked off Tuesday, November 12 in Nairobi, Kenya amid resistance from religious leaders and other civil society groups.
