A section of the Kisii county clergy has asked the political players to involve all Kenyan citizens in the dispensation and glamour for the constitutional review changes being discussed in the country.
The Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) Kisii diocese Bishop John Omangi has said there is need for the political class to involve the church and all Kenyans on any impending constitutional reforms and its benefit.
“We urge the politicians to involve the church in this referendum debate. It’s the church that initiated the talks and they hijacked it,” he said
Bishop Omangi Said that the current talk of constitutional change and the Punguza Mzigo bill currently in counties for debate should have been put to the public for scrutiny before debate and submissions in the assemblies.
“As a church we also feel we should give out directions about this since we initiated it at the Ufungamano hall in 2010,” he added
He was speaking during the church’s prayers service for security and administration sector adding that the ‘’Punguza Mzigo’’ bill had not been brought officially before the churches’ leadership.
He faulted politicians and some county assemblies for taking a position on the Ekuru Aukot bill before it had been exhaustively discussed by the public.
Kisii Deputy OCPD Caleb Matoke commended the area community policing committees for doing a good job.
But the OCPD pointed out that the committee members should be adequately sensitized with a view to executing their responsibilities as per the relevant law.
Matoke’s remarks sought to demystify the role of the security partnership outfit who’s some of its activities had raised eyebrows in the area.
Kisii Main prison commander Ephantus Kariuki emphasized their departments’ duty to reform the society to be a crime free adding that the prayers were crucial in giving them impetus to drive on.
