Kenya Not Ready For Political Disruption after Covid-19 Disruption – Jackson Ole Sapit

Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has challenged political players to be keen on the language they will be using as we head to the 2022 general election campaign period.

Ole Sapit says politicians should avoid utterances and actions that might lead to divisions amongst Kenyans.

Speaking in Eldoret town, the ACK leader further asked Kenyans to maintain peace – and not to allow politics to divide them into tribal, regional, or ethnic lines.

“We also encourage Kenyans, we know the political season has started, let’s keep peace be one another’s keeper as we have no spare parts for our country, it’s the only one that we have,” Ole Sapit told the press in Eldoret.

“Elections will come and go, leadership will change hands but all of us remain, lets approach this season soberly with a mind that we know will come and go,” he added.

The clergy also called on politicians to focus on developing political manifestos that will give Kenyans hope, especially at this time that they are still struggling with the economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Present your manifestos in a way that gives respect to everybody, let’s avoid name-calling, which will only add turmoil and injury. Let’s be instruments of hope, let the manifestos give hope and not hopelessness,” Ole Sapit advised politicians.

He also reiterated the need for soberness among individuals eyeing various political seats and their supporters pointing out that Kenya was not ready for political disruption, especially at this time it is struggling to come out of the Covid-19 pandemic effects.

“Let us all be vigilant and ensure a peaceful process,” the ACK leader said.

The country has already witnessed heightened political activities that are expected to go a notch higher with the 2022 poll nearing.
