Catholic Bishop asks Kenyans to embrace peace and dialogue as political activities rise

A Catholic Bishop has urged Kenyans to embrace peace and dialogue as he dismissed as fake a press statement allegedly issued by the Catholic Bishops of Kenya asking the Deputy President William Ruto to rein in his supporters to stop using abusive language in the public fora.

Archbishop Martin Kivuva denied having signed the statement that also gave Garissa Town MP Aden Duale 72 hours to table an apology for calling the Catholic Church a cult.

The statement that went viral on social media had condemned Duale’s statement saying such utterances that demonize other people‚Äôs faiths should not be condoned.

Making the clarification, Archbishop Kivuva said the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops had not met to discuss the matter or to demand an apology.

Duale courted controversy when he described the Catholic Church as a cult – sparking immediate condemnation from Kenyans who accused him demeaning other faiths by issuing hateful and intolerant statements
