Restore your credibility, Anglican Church tells IEBC

Anglican Church Archbishop Eliud Wabukala

Anglican Church Archbishop Eliud Wabukala has asked the electoral commission to strive to restore its credibility.

Archbishop Wabukala said as the country moved towards the next elections, it was prudent that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) won the confidence of Kenyans.

"We ask you (IEBC) to restore your credibility if you are to be believed and trusted to conduct the next General Election. We need Kenyans to have confidence in you for the election results to be taken," he said.

Speaking while delivering a sermon at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi, Wabukala said the political situation in the country was not good and there was need for leaders in different positions to cool the political temperatures for the sake of the electorate.

"We are praying that our leaders so that they can understand that this country needs stability. Everyone is saying 2017 will be bad. Why don't we address the issues now rather than wait for it to get bad?" Wabukala asked.

The Archbishop asked Kenyans to nurture self control and soberness and urged them to trust each other.

"Let's trust each other from the family to the Church and the nation and lets love one another and exercise self control and sobriety in all our undertakings," he said.
