A bishop has urged the electorate to interrogate all the candidates in the March 4 elections to ensure they vote in leaders of high moral standards and integrity.
Kitui Catholic Bishop Anthony Muheria said Kenyans cannot afford to brush off the issue of integrity aside, if it is they are to elect competent leaders. He was speaking at the weekend after holding a special mass for the boda boda operators at Our Lady of Africa Cathedral in Kitui town.
The clergyman accused some politicians of feigning ignorance on the integrity and leadership requirements as provided for in Chapter Six of the Constitution. Muheria said the Catholic Church is not supporting any presidential candidate.
He however added that the church will rally Kenyans to vet those seeking elective offices to ensure they picked only the best and most credible. The Bishop asked Kenyans to scrutinise the candidates.
