Africa Inland Church (AIC) Deputy Presiding Bishop Rev. Paul Kirui has called on leaders to build a united national family to dispel hatred and division and promote harmony and tolerance.
In a wide-ranging message to the media on Tuesday morning in connection to the ongoing mourning of the late former President Daniel Moi, Bishop Kirui said leaders should be agents of peace, love and unity by prioritising the needs of the common man.
” Moi was a God-fearing servant who who dedicated his life to service to humanity and as a way to remember him, we should keep off ethnic division and unite all communities to live as brothers and sisters as he did,” he said
The South Rift Bishop said, soon after the mourning is over, leaders will embark on the Building Bridges Initiative debate and while on this, they should unite the country by accommodating divergent views.
Kirui further called on the leaders from all the calibres to promote national cohesion, noting that there is more need to end division that has “eaten deep into the fabric of our society”.
” Without unity and peaceful environment, it will be impossible to deliver mandates and establish the highly anticipated for development projects,” he said
And the church, Kirui said, it plays a key role in providing direction to a peaceful and development-guaranteed future, and so to unwaveringly play its role, it should endeavour to create income-generating activities to finance its operations.
To Kenyans, he devote their lives to Christ and be loyal to their country and self-sacrificing in their pursuit of common good.
