Clergy against the push for referendum

18 August 2014, 19:03 Wilshere

Nakuru - Clergy in Nakuru town have faulted both the Governors Council and CORD coalition's push for referendum saying it will destabilise the government.

The men of the cloth said that the push for referendum was untimely and that it would bar the government from realising its mandate. 

Led by the presiding bishop of the East African Pentecostal Churches of Kenya (EAPCK) Samuel Muguna, they said the country is not ready for another political showdown.

“Political temperature is rising daily in the country and we as the clergy are concerned because the lives of Kenyans will not be improved as service and development may not be initiated,” he said on Sunday.

Muguna also urged the two camps pushing for referendum to exploit all the legal avenues provided in the Constitution before plunging the country into another poll.

He noted that CORD has all the right to criticise the government but they should do so without creating division among Kenyans. 

The Bishop reiterated their support of the government and called on political leaders to cool off and give time for the implementation of the 2010 constitution.

“The two parties should seek alternative ways of engaging the government in order to avoid portraying the country as one that is always in an election mood hence compromising its economy recovery,” Bishop Muguna added, saying that the Constitution is too young to be mutilated.

They also reiterated the need to fight corruption in government and private institutions.
