The Mountain Times :- We've Got you covered

A section of the Clergy in Kirinyaga East Sub- county has expressed concern over the rising  political intolerance in the country .

The Priests  said the current crop of political leadership should emulate  the style of the former president Mwai Kibaki .

The priests under the Kirinyaga East Clergy Forum Desk banner said during the Kibaki era , no politician would dare engage him in verbal exchange due to his good stewardship of national affairs.

The Clergymen who were addressing the media at the Divine Evangelistic Ministries  Church , Kianyaga town this morning  also took issue with the Director of Prosecutions  Noordin  Haji for declining to have politicians implicated with corruption  charged  with the said offences.

Led by their chairman Bishop Dr Jacob Kamau the priests expressed fears that such politicians should be arrested immediately and charged in court to avoid unnecessary spending public money only  later to occasion  by-elections .

“ As the church we call upon the DOPP to   charge all those politicians  implicated in corruption right now or  else he resigns  before it’s too late for failing to do so will be too costly for the nation ,”Kamau noted .

Said the Cleric “ the law should apply  uniformly across the board  while where an individual has messed up  he  should be held responsible individually and not an entire institution as has been the case,”.

The priests asked   Kenyans to  continue prying  for peace and tranquility  to prevail  in the country during this electioneering period .

Added Kamau “ as the church , we shall continue to seek  for divine intervention  so that  our country can continue enjoying the prevailing  peace without which nothing could move on in terms of development “.

The priests also decried the underdevelopment within Gichugu constituency especially the  poor road  network .
