In pursuing its Christian calling, the Council shall uphold:
Frequent political wrangles in Nyeri County could be a thing of the past after the 2017 elections, should Church leaders implement their resolutions adopted at a recent meeting held in the region.
During the meeting organized by the County Coordinating Committee (C.C.C) of the National Council of Churches of Kenya, the leaders resolved to build the capacity of voters who are majorly their congregants and enable them vet those who will be vying for elective seats in Nyeri County.
They regretted that frequent wrangles pitting Members of the County Assembly and the County Government had stifled the development agenda in the region. They undertook to conduct civic education aimed at enabling the electorate identify and vote for people with proper credentials.
The forum that brought together over 60 participants under the chairmanship of Nyeri C.C.C Chairman Reverend Cyrus Mureithi, mainly focused on the state of affairs in Nyeri and projected ways of intervention on various issues affecting the County. Rev. Mureithi emphasized on the importance of the Church in electoral processes.
NCCK’s Regional Coordinator for Central Region Isaac Njoroge who spoke to Jumuia news, echoed Rev. Mureithi’s sentiments saying, “It was an important forum since it gave the Church a platform to plan on how to take a proactive role in the electoral process by creating awareness among voters thus contributing to their informed involvement in elections”.
