The Catholic church in Kenya yesterday said its members will vote with their conscience in the coming elections.
Speaking at the Kenya Episcopal Conference in Karen, head of the catholic church in Kenya Cardinal John Njue said that the catholic flock has been adequately prepared for the coming elections since the clergy has been conducting voter education
Njue said the Catholic church has rolled out several programmes to promote peace before, during and after the election. He said reports of rigging, intimidation of opponents and total disregard for political party manifestos during party primaries is worrying and a recipe for conflict.
Njue said it is sad this disregard of Kenyans democratic rights happened despite the presence of a new constitution, a reformed elctoral body, new political party guidelines and a reformed judicary.
