Christians in Nandi County turned out in large numbers to mark Good Friday in their respective churches, as they commemorated Jesus Christ’s death. A message of reconciliation and unity dominated church gatherings, where all Kenyans including leaders were urged to cherish peace and unity. Catholic faithful were seen marching as thy marked the way of the cross, a tradition done around Catholic churches countrywide.
The clergy cited that reconciliation and forgiveness are the two keys that are essential for national development and some lauded the peace pact between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga, citing it as mature politics. Political leaders who are still at odds with the peace pact were urged to join the ship and shun criticizing the move.
However, there was condemnation when it came to the treatment of Miguna Miguna, who was deported to Dubai and was confined at JKIA since his arrival on Monday from Canada. Church leaders insisted the law must be respected and said Miguna wasn’t treated well, adding that it portrays a bad image for the nation on the international stage.
