Parents across the country have been urged to be on the front line when it comes to giving proper guidance to the youths, given that they are prone to facing challenges which may negatively affect their lives if handled wrongly. In his address to the media after presiding over the sisterhood mass for Dorice Wanyonyi at St. John Catholic Parish in Tongaren constituency, Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) Chairman Bishop Philip Anyolo said the youths have a responsibility of molding their lives well.
He expressed his concern over the death of Sharon Otieno, a Rongo university student who was brutally murdered saying the police should conduct a thorough investigation into the case and arrest those culpable, saying the late Sharon could’ve had a positive contribution to the society.
He also urged leaders to seek an amicable solution to the issue of the 16% fuel tax, saying many Kenyans are suffering as they can’t cope with the rise in commodity prices that has arisen indirectly as a result. The Bishop said as Catholic Bishops, they’ve written a complaint letter regarding the issue and are anticipating a good response from the President.
Sister Dorice who hails from Tongaren constituency has secured her work station in Uganda and the mass was attended by Christians from Kenya as well as Uganda. Messages of encouragement and congratulations dominated the friends and family speeches.
