President Uhuru Kenyatta asks spiritual leaders to be herdsmen of building bridges of unity and not to allow the nation to remain in the delusion of divisive politics.

President Uhuru asked all religious leaders to continue feeding Kenyans with messages of hope, to remain non-partisan for the wellness of the country.

“I call upon the church to be the voice of reason and we need you, as our religious leaders, to be non-partisan, and persons who help fix divides. I know the church resides above politics.

"But we all have to help our people to know that we cannot be a nation whose sole passion is politics – all year, every year, year in year out,” said the President at State House, Nairobi on Friday when he met the religious leaders.

The President said it is only by the powerful support of all Kenyans, including religious leaders, that the country will overcome challenges like corruption that are an obstacle to the country's development.

“Speak strongly against all the clamps that are holding our nation back. Our job of building this nation is shared accountability; we are serving the same people. We deliver on the physical wellness of all the citizens as you nourish their souls and spirit," the head of State said.

Meanwhile, President Kenyatta and the religious leaders concluded to host national prayers on Saturday, October 10, 2020, among other national issues, pray for the country's battle with Covid-19.
