The Story Of Archbishop Martin Kivuva Musonde From Communications Career To His Priesthood Journey.

Being a Sunday, let's take a look at our religious leaders in the Catholic church. So today I want us to know much about the current chairperson of Kenya Conference Of Catholic Church Bishops, Archbishop Martin Kivuva Musonde. He's a committed and we'll known Roman catholic priest who has served in various levels upto now he's an archbishop. 

Kivuva was born in 1952, Muthetheni in Machakos county. To prepare for his religious journey, this guy was baptized in the same year and the spirit of God walked with him. After completion of highschool studies, he joined St. Mary's Seminary Kwale. After this Musonde moved to St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Nairobi to study Philosophy and Throloy. This completion earned him a chance to be ordained as priest in 1978 and was posted to work in Mwatate Parish.

In terms of careers apart from priesthood, he's a great professor in communications. Holds certificates in building and construction ( Mombasa polytechnic), Religious studies ( University of Nairobi), Aid in administration ( Selly Oak College in England) , Radio Production ( All Africa Conference of Churches, Nairobi) and Radio Production Telecommunications ( Dallas, Texas). These academic achievements made him work as a social communication coordinator for Mombasa archdiocese and later in Ukweli video production a position held until he was appointed as a Machakos diocese bishop. 

The journey to bishop career begun in 2003 where he was consecrated as a Bishop in Machakos where he served upto 2014. At that point Martin was installed as an archbishop and transfered to Mombasa, his current work place. In his service, he still holds on the motto" that all may be one". He champions for rights of humans especially the disadvantaged regardless of religious afflictions. 

Kivuva and his colleague Anthony Muheria from Nyeri are still in the move to bring Uhuru and Ruto to a reconciliation point. Their main aim is to avoid political discord that's greatly setting Kenyans apart as we prepare for 2022 elections. Let's continue holding flags higher for our bishop in his efforts to foster religious unity.
