Sapit: Don't politicise environment

By Jeckonia Otieno | September 20th 2020 at 12:37:00 GMT +0300

Anglican Archbishop Jackson ole Sapit (pictured) has cautioned against politicisation of environmental matters.

Speaking in Nairobi during the International Clean-up Day, he cited Mau Forest and the Masai Mara Game Reserve, warning that interference with the ecosystem has consequences that will stretch through different generations and must not be subjected to politics of the day.

The clean-up was organised by the Green Anglican Movement, Nairobi City County and Trees for Healthy Community Organisation.
