Njue cautions youth against radicalization

23 June 2015, 11:06 Mike Munga

Nairobi - Cardinal John Njue has urged Kenyan youth to turn to God and seek His mercies in order to lead a Christian life.

The Catholic head urged the youths to become an instrument of unity and not be ashamed of doing good.

He urged young people not to be enticed with earthly things which can lead them into criminals.

"If you are united with good, there is nothing to fear about," he said.

He added: "Do good and deny bad and become instruments of joy in your families."

The Cardinal challenged young people to be steady when facing challenges and said no challenge is is too big for God.

"Be with God and you will be victorious the rest of the days," he said.

Njue urged youths to respect their parents and stop yearning for material things which do not last.

He noted that the urge to get rich fast has made youths to indulge in sinful activities including being recruited by Al Shabaab to wreak havoc in the country.

He was speaking at St Joseph Mukasa Parish Kahawa West during family day celebrations, where more than 140 people were confirmed.

The Parish is named after a Uganda Martyr Joseph Mukasa Balikuddembe, a catholic convert and a senior advisor to the then Buganda King Mwanga.

He was persecuted by the king in 1885 by questioning his actions of persecuting missionaries without giving them a fair hearing.

Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and more than 15 Nairobi County MCAs led by Kahawa West ward MCA, Ngaruiya Chege also attended the function.

Sonko urged politicians to refrain from making derogatory remarks about their rivals in church functions, but instead concentrate on making life of their constituents better.

"This is not the time for going round in the churches and abusing each other but to preach peace and progress in order to end poverty that is affecting the common mwananchi," he said.
