Kenya: Church Army Africa Celebrates 60 Years

The Star – Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Eliud Wabukala has called on the Jubilee government to accept calls for dialogue by the opposition.

He however expressed his objection to mass demonstrations Cord leader Raila Odinga is agitating for. Wabukala said the Bible supports dialogue as a way of reaching consensus. “We support what Cord calls ‘national dialogue’ but this should not be misused,” he said .

Wabukala said the dialogue should be “all inclusive” to ensure all Kenyans are represented. He said calls for national dialogue should not divide Kenyans along party or tribal lines. “I want to tell our leaders who have called for demonstrations across the country that it is not the right direction to go.

Let us give dialogue a chance,” Wabukala said. He was speaking in Khasoko area of Bumula constituency where he laid a foundation stone for Kenya Anglican University Western campus on Saturday. “Our youth are the ones who will be used in the demonstrations and that will be a setback to our economy.

As church leaders, we support the dialogue calls be- cause it is the only way we can find lasting peace in this country,” Wabukala said.

He said representatives of various groups should use the forum to find solutions to the country’s problems.
