Religious Fundamentalism in Kenya is so real that it threatens every positive gain in human rights. It is seen to have orchestrated gross human rights abuses and violations. Rev Michael Nzioki Kimindu an Anglican priest lost favor with the church for being a liberal.
“I accepted Gods calling to serve the Other Sheep that are not considered worthy before men’’, He said. His is a replica on how the men of the church treat each other when one appears to be of a divergent view.
On Tuesday 22nd the Prime Minister while addressing the Pentecostal Assembly of God (PAG) conference and Prayer meeting at City hall said. ‘’ The Church is deeply involved in provision of services like education and healthcare. So ideally, the church and state are partners’’. He said.
‘’One of the paradoxes in Kenya is that while we remain a deeply religious Nation, our public affairs rarely reflect this deep religiosity in the country’’, Mr Odinga observed.
The Prime Minister thanked the church for the critical role it plays in development of this country, but challenged religious organizations to step up efforts to address problems facing the society.
