Blame game should stop, church leaders

23 June 2014, 11:05 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - Church leaders at the coast have challenged political leaders to the stop blame game over security issues and instead convene a national dialogue to address key issues affecting the country.

The leaders said failure by the government to bring together different parties to address critical issues affecting the country might tear the country apart.

They however urged the government to institute proper strategies of dealing with insecurity matters in the country.

Addressing the press in Mombasa Friday under the House of Bishop’s umbrella, the leaders condemned the Mpeketoni massacre and supported the opposition’s calls for a national dialogue.

They further called on the government to stop pointing fingers at political rivals but instead find a solution on the fight against terror.

“We want peace restored, we want the government to look into our problems as Kenyans, we want them to talk and find a long-term solution,” said Bishop Joseph Maisha, chairman of House of Bishops.

The leaders opposed the calls to fire security officials saying the government should instead look for alternatives in dealing with insecurity.

“We call upon relevant organs to go about their responsibilities effectively. We don’t push for them to be fired; what we say is that the problems should be looked into critically,” said Bishop Abanjah Kinnxjah, conveyor of the House of Bishops in the coastal region.

The leaders cited among others, problems such as historical injustices in the coastal parts of Kenya which if not addressed effectively would lead to conflicts among various coastal tribes.

“We urge the government to end land conflict so that we can prevent conflicts and also the possible insecurity it might cause,” said bishop Abanjah.

Abinjah said even after the government issued over 60 000 titles in the coast, land in Tana River has not yet been adjudicated citing that this might spark more land conflicts if not addressed well.
