Kenya has many religions. We have Christianity, Islamic among others. These religions have huge followers across the country. Under Christianity, we have numerous denominations. We have Catholic, Seventy Day Adventist and Protestants. However, we have other independent and personal churches in a corners of this country. Most of these churches are headed by men.
The world is changing at alarming rate. Women are now demanding that they should be allowed to head or ascend to the highest office in the church hierarchy. The Catholic Church has also faced a similar challenge. The Anglican Church of Kenya has been the first church in Kenya to appoint a woman as a Bishop. Rose Okeno is the first woman to be a Bishop in Kenya. She was appointed to head Butere ACK Diocese.
Bishop Rose Okeno has received numerous congratulations from different people in Kenya. The former Prime Minister Honourable Raila Odinga sent his congratulation message to Rose Okeno through his Tweeter account. " ... warm congratulations to you...I am proud of ACK Church of Kenya..." Raila Odinga wrote in his Twitter account
