The Catholic Church's Strong Message To Both Raila and Ruto Ahead Of Tomorrow Demos

Before the Azimio la Umoja - One Kenya peaceful protests scheduled for tomorrow, Monday, March 20, 2023, religious leaders under the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops have urged Kenyan politicians to hold peace talks.

The leaders, led by Mombasa Archbishop Fr Martin Kivuva Musonde, noted that the demonstrations posed a severe threat to the country's peace and stability in a statement dated Sunday, March 19, 2023.

According to Kivuva, there are far too many issues facing the nation for there to be any chance of violence adding to them. For the benefit of Kenyans, he begged leaders to find compromises within the bounds of the constitution.

Famine and hunger are the two biggest issues that Kenyan citizens confront as a nation. We don't want to make them worse by increasing the possibility of violence as we work to find solutions.

Many deserving issues need to be addressed, wrongs that need to be criticized, and unfulfilled promises that need to be challenged, but all of these things must be done within the boundaries of the Constitution, he said.

Kivuva also urged Kenyan officials to hold talks on a better way to handle problems rather than organizing demonstrations. He emphasized that Azimio chairman Raila Odinga should look for alternative means of resolving problems.
