Mission & Vision

Pressure to undertake reforms at the  Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) ahead of next year’s general election continue to mount, with the National Council of Churches of Kenya  (NCCK) calling on Kenyans to demand accountability and answers from government and the electoral body on the Country’s preparedness for the polls.

Speaking in Machakos, NCCK General Secretary Reverend Canon Peter Karanja called on Kenyans to sustain pressure on IEBC to ensure that the next elections are free and fair.

 

He reminded Kenyans of the controversy that surrounded the acquisition of electronic equipment in the run up to the 2013 polls terming it a concern for Kenyans. “We all remember how in 2013, the IEBC took Kenyans for a ride when they engaged in massive corruption during the acquisition of electronic equipment for use during the elections. This is the greatest responsibility that all Kenyans must demand for the sake of our nation,” he pointed out.

He was speaking during the 70th anniversary of the Africa Brotherhood Church (ABC). The Church which spreads across the East African region, is presided over by the Most Reverend Archbishop  Dr. Timothy Ndambuki, who is also the NCCK Vice Chairman.

Canon Karanja challenged the politicians across the political divide to consider instituting a legal process that could provide Kenyans with a credible body that will oversee next year’s polls.

Canon Karanja said: “Nobody between Jubilee and CORD has initiated a legal process to remove the current commissioners. All indications are that IEBC may trigger violence among Kenyans. Is it time that they are paid their dues for the remainder period to enable Kenyans chose another body which is credible to secure the 2017 elections? A credible referee will restore confidence even in those who lose the election.”

Canon Karanja at the same time hit out at politicians accusing them of dividing Kenyans along tribal lines. He said that it was possible for leaders to be elected based on the values they stood for as opposed to tribe. “Kenya is too large to be sacrificed at the alter of tribalism. We must remove these barriers to give Kenyans an opportunity to mingle and discuss freely,” he said during his sermon to the more than 5,000 congregants among them former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka and a host of politicians mainly from  Ukambani region.

Canon Karanja pointed out  that Kenya will prosper when politicians will be liberated. He took issue with the fight against corruption saying that both sides of Jubilee and CORD had not shown any commitment to eradicating the vice. “I have lost hope that Jubilee can deal with corruption. I am equally not sure that should CORD form the next government it will be able to fight corruption,” said Canon Karanja. He urged Kenyans who had not registered as voters to do so when time comes to liberate the country.
