Clerics initiate talks between CORD, Jubilee

The clergy has urged leaders from across the political divide to embrace dialogue to address problems facing the country.

Speaking at Capitol Hill, the headquarters of CORD, moments after meeting Opposition chiefs Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetang'ula, Narc-Kenya's Martha Karua and Kanu's Nick Salat, the clerics said they had initiated dialogue between CORD and Jubilee.

Singling out reforming the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) as the most urgent, the clerics said it was only through dialogue that the country can avoid more loss of life and property.

"We the clergy from the Catholic Church and the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) have always been looking for peace. We have met members of the Okoa Kenya today and we will meet with Jubilee next so that we get lasting solutions to problems facing us," said Eldoret Catholic Diocese Bishop Cornelius Korir.

Nairobi Auxilliary Bishop David Kamau said peace was important for the stability of the nation.

"We are calling upon all leaders of good will in this country to realise that the country is bigger than them and be ready to work together," he said.
