The Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) Chairperson Archbishop Martin Kivuva has urged the government to sustain the fight against the corruption scourge for the nation’s benefit.

Speaking to the media during the Good Friday commemoration at the Holy Ghost Cathedral in Mombasa, Kivuva said the vice has curtailed the progress of the nation and to a large extent eroded the moral fabric that binds the country together.

“Our nation desires a dedicated service that supersedes greed and is reminiscent of the needs of all its citizens free of corruption that fuels the collapse of institutions and morals,” said Kivuva.

He also delivered a heartfelt plea for national and global peace, emphasizing the need for harmony and reconciliation amidst escalating conflicts.

The Bishop’s fervent call for peace resonated deeply, particularly in the wake of spates of insecurity experienced in the Northern frontier. He pleaded with the government to remain resolute in its stand to protect the lives and property of Kenyans.

Kivuva lauded the selfless acts security agencies have been committed to in bringing lasting peace to Kenyans in traditionally volatile regions in the North and other areas in the County.

“We pray that peace prevails in our nation and the world over. The conflict has brought untold suffering to many people leaving them destitute. We acknowledge the efforts the government has put in place to secure the nation and protect its citizens,” added Kivuva.

With the recent wave of mushrooming emergence of unorthodox religious organizations that mirror cult-like establishments in the country, Kivuva called on Kenyans to shun extremism propagated by individuals purporting to run these entities but rather, seek spiritual guidance from conventional religious institutions.

“The clergy urges Kenyans from all walks of life to take precaution and seek the word of God from honest and truthful organizations that represent what the clergy and the laws of our land conform to,” said Kivuva.
