Olesapit and Raila, Nyong'o to mark ACK 50th anniversary in Kisumu today

By Kepher Otieno | Nov 15th 2020 | 1 min read

Anglicans will today celebrate the 50th anniversary of Maseno South Diocese amid calls on Kenyans to support the Building Bridges Initiative report.

Archbishop Jackson ole Sapit (pictured) yesterday said the church is not opposed to the BBI recommendations, but noted there were sections that require amendments to create harmony.

Speaking at St Stephen Cathedral in Kisumu after touring and opening at least five new churches across the diocese, Sapit said the church is committed to enabling the implementation of the BBI.

“We want to push for an egalitarian society where equity will be the new defining norm,” said the archbishop.

The cleric called on Kenyans to read the BBI report keenly and make sober and informed decisions, noting that the Constitution is not static and therefore should not be read in that solid context.

Promote democracy

“We must constantly be ready to review what works for us and not. This is how we will eventually promote democracy. Therefore, we must review the laws with a progressive lens,” said Sapit.

He told Anglicans that they are currently still reading and reviewing the recommendations in the BBI report and by end month, they will give a comprehensive stand.

The cleric asked Kenyans to continue critiquing the report and suggest the areas they want amended or changed for the common good.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga, Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o are expected to join ACK faithful across Nyanza in the anniversary celebrations.
