Political leaders in Kenya more often than not act like they have absolute power. As a result these leaders are accorded so much power by their followers that few would dare challenge them on many matters, even when they are wrong.

Unfortunately, our churches have at times been caught in this web and found themselves getting compromised by either abetting evil or by keeping quiet with evident bad leadership.

In a nutshell the church should attempt to play their role in propagating values that are needed in a healthy nation and help beat some odds in our nation.

For example,ethnicity has proved to be a major challenge. This was manifested in events surroundings the 2007 elections that caused the church to wonder what exactly happened the values such as justice,truth and the sanctity of life.

Many times Kenyan citizens are faced with oppression, impunity, corruption and exploitation,its is high time for the church to step out and preach against all these evils and ensure that there is development of tru sense of nationhood and also help do away with man~eat~man principle in our society that try to collapse our justice

Therefore as we prepare to race in vote for the leaders of our choice come end of this year, the church as a whole should effectively accomplish its role in the task of nation building by preaching out what is good and bad and help Kenyans flush out the leaders who portray lesser characteristics of leadership.
