Nairobi - Jubilee and CORD leaders have received rare praise from religious leaders for agreeing to find a solution to the ongoing dispute over the country's electoral body.

Religious leaders drawn from seven groups said they are happy with the progress made in resolving the issues raised over the Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commission (IEBC).

The clergymen led by Eldoret Catholic Diocese Bishop Cornelius Korir who spoke in Nairobi after a meeting said they appreciate that the leadership of the main two political factions have agreed to get an amicable solution to the problem.

"We are thankful to the fruitful engagements we have had with the various actors; we are happy that both Jubilee and CORD have agreed to participate in talks. We appreciate their willingness to back down from past grandstanding and acceptance to dialogue," said Korir who spoke on behalf of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops.
