Kitui: County Executive Committee Member for Tourism, Sports and Culture Patrick Koki Musau has asked the clergy to unite in the wake of spiraling divisions among men of the cloth in the county.
Musau, who spoke at the Grace of God Church (GCC) in Kabati today, said divisions among members of the clergy had instigated grim setbacks in the society.
He said their unity “was the foundation of progress in the society” saying time had come for the pastors to put aside their personal interests and march towards a common goal.
During a one day Kitui West Interdenominational Clergy Fellowship (KWICF) meeting, Musau, however, expressed hope for furthered unity among the clergy.
He informed of willingness by the county administration to support the clergy in various matters of concern when called upon.
He similarly, urged them to link with the Charity Ngilu led administration in search of possible solutions to any challenges faced by the clergy in their service.
KWICF Chairperson Rev. Humphrey Mwanthi and group secretary Rev. Joseph Nganda were in attendance.
Also present was Mrs. Edith Nyenze, the Kitui West Wiper Parliamentary hopeful in the forthcoming by-election who pledged to work closely with the local clergy during and after the campaigns
