We are set to receive the President: Church leaders

Preparation to receive President William Ruto for interdenominational and thanks giving service in Nandi County is complete, according to the statement released by the umbrella of church leaders North Rift Region.

During their press briefing at County Headquarters Office Ground on Wednesday, the leaders asked everyone from the region to join the President on Sunday during thanks giving prayers at Kapsabet Showground.

The church leaders emphasised that there was need for Kenyans to insist on unity through prayer at a time when there were serious economic challenges aggravated by persistent drought in various parts of the country and global economic and political challenges which have had direct impact to the country’s stability.

Led by the Right Rev Dr Paul Korir, Anglican Church of Kenya, Diocese of Kapsabet, the leaders assured neighbouring counties that they were welcome to receive President on Sunday after several days of preparation.

Korir revealed that the church leaders especially from Nandi and Uasin Gishu Counties have jointly worked together through meetings, phone and social media engagements to ensure their unity stands as they jointly wait the President.

According to the church leaders present during the press briefing, despite existence of different churches in the region, the level of unity when it comes to common communal engagement has been truly remarkable.

The ACK minister however asked Kenyans to continue praying at the time some regions witness rain after several months of drought. He asked residents from areas receiving rains to utilise it and increase food production in the country.

Meanwhile, Nandi County Outgoing County Commissioner Herman Shambi has confirmed that all are set to receive the President on Sunday during the interdenominational and thanksgiving service at Kapsabet Showground.
