Campaign While Preaching Peace and Cohesion, Bishop Amayi Tells Politicians

Calvary Holiness leader Bishop Wycliffe Amayi Obwama is calling on political leaders to shun utterances that might lead to divisions amongst various communities across the country.

In an interview with Uasin Gishu News, Bishop Amayi said even as politicians move around the country campaigning for various seats, they should prioritize preaching peace and cohesion.

The Eldoret-based clergy noted that politicians hold a special place in society where their utterances are taken seriously.

I ask for peace and cohesion in utterances that aspirants will be making during this political season. All eyeing be it Member of Parliament, Governor or any other seat, be a good leader by uniting locals who are the ones that make you be a leader,” said Bishop Amayi.

According to the Calvary Holiness Bishop, a good leader that will help the country and his/her people prosper can be seen by looking at how they speak.

He noted that Kenya, and more so Uasin Gishu County has people from different communities, tribes, and nationalities, which need a leader who will seek to serve their interests without fear of favor.

We are all Kenyans who live and eat from whatever we do here. All we need is a leader that will champion peace and unity irrespective of our ethnic backgrounds,” noted Bishop Amayi.

The clergy also asked the politicians to always visit the church, but focus on preaching peace and unity to the congregants.

He also called on Kenyans to shun individuals out to divide them into ethnic, tribal, political, or regional lines.

Unity is important for all of us. Politics is a one-day event but after that, no politician will pay your bills. Don’t be that person that will cause chaos and destroy other people’s properties,” Bishop Amayi noted.

Calls for peace and unity come even as the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) prepares to hold its nominations.

Campaigns for the August 9 poll are also expected to get a notch higher with the political re-alignments almost complete.
