Catholic Bishops raise concern over political bickering on 2022 succession

Bishop of Eldoret Diocese Dominic Kimengich

Catholic Bishops on Sunday expressed concern over the ongoing political bickering occasioned by the 2022 succession race.

In a statement issued by Bishop of Eldoret Diocese Dominic Kimengich, the clergy under the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) called on the political leaders to commit themselves to serving Kenyans and shun divisive politics which he noted risk sinking the country into instability.

“Our people are confused and are unable to understand, what is really happening to our politicians, the promises they had made. People are still hurt, the wounds of the 2007/8 post-election violence are still not healed.”

“Please I beg you do not open these wounds. Please see the good of this country and put aside the political games and the jostling for political positioning regarding the 2022 elections,” the Bishop pleaded.
