Changing Political Agenda !?, As time tickled, I looked at my watch and retired to bed. It reminded me of those days that my dad used to motion us, or rather summon us to our bedrooms, especially after we had had our sumptuous dinner; this was always after the 7 o’clock Kenya Broadcasting Corporation KBC night news. The theme of each broadcasted news, centered and revolved around a Political Agenda.
Our eyes glued on the TV set unperturbed by the surroundings as Baba (Retired former President Moi) uttered the trade mark Harambee! As a unison response of Nyayo! , reverberated the air. He spoke in a unique authoritative and accented crackling voice, obviously advancing both a Political Agenda and some Government position.
I am a proud Anglican Church of Kenya member. Hey! You cannot bully me nor challenge me on that one.’ If you want we can bet, but not with my surly pessimism and paradoxes, what ever it means.’ Wait a minute! Who of you knows the head of the Anglican Church of Kenya? Ooops! I meant the head of the Anglican Communion world wide. Do you have an idea?
Of course, you will tell me that Archbishop Dr Eliud Wabukala is the head of the Anglican Church of Kenya. Yes, yes you are right and, I will score you 100 percent. He is also my diocesan Bishop at All Saints Diocese in Nairobi. Anglican Church of Kenya boosts of several dioceses in its Province. The Archbishop is the notable head of the Communion.
Anglican Church of Kenya and the undercover ‘secret’ visit;
Dr Rowan Williams is the purported world wide leader of the Anglican Communion though, in a ceremonial capacity. Dr Rowan arrived in Nairobi on Saturday 18th June 2011 at the start of a week long visit.
The head of the Anglican Church of Kenya Dr Wabukala while welcoming his brother Dr Rowan said , ‘’Your Grace , I reiterate our welcome and openness in sharing the apostolic faith within the Anglican Communion. This I reckon is the greatest opportunity that we share within the body of Christ; witnessing the Good News of Salvation’’
How many of us who share the Anglican Communion in Kenya at least new of the Archbishop’s visit? Or if we knew, did we take it with the seriousness it deserves? Have you ever noticed when for example a senior Popes representative visit the Catholic Church in Kenya, what do you think will happen?
Anglican Church of Kenya probably had a prominent visitor but it did not make sense why we did not feel the vibrancy or the excitement about this. Ok fine! It might not have been that important to all the membership of the Anglican Church of Kenya but it meant something for some of us.
I attended the evening service held at the National Cathedral in Nairobi in which Dr Rowan attended, and interestingly majority of the congregants were guest clergy within the Anglican Church of Kenya congregations. The local parishioners were not fully enlightened about the visit.
‘Or maybe we were not enthusiastic enough. But why was this? This must have been because of the poor handlers of the visit or a possibility of an intentional error of omission that will make the Primates visit a secret’.
A bigger chunk of our preconditioned mindsets, loves the idea of watching a particular kind of game in the World of Sports. When we are lazy to participate in the eSports, we are ardent supporters of a particular football team, say Arsenal or a fun of the Red devils. It’s really amazing and shocking in equal measures how the World of Sports can turn most of us extremely crazy and taken away with stupor.
