Kenya: Religious Leaders Call for Tolerance
By Stanley Njenga
Religious organisations in Kiambu and Murang'a have called on political leaders to avoid spreading tribal animosities.
The Hindu, Muslim and Christian leaders were speaking after attending a one-day interfaith workshop on the role of religious organisations towards a peaceful, free and fair elections organised by the IEBC at a Thika hotel.
Thika Interfaith Association chairman Aboo Norein and secretary Reverend Samwel Kinyanjui said some unsubstantiated utterances that have hit the headlines in the recent past are dangerous and uncalled for.
