Kenya’s Christian leaders warn against ethnic violence
Catholic World News - June 24, 2014
Catholic, Anglican, and other Christian leaders in Kenya have warned against the threat of ethnic violence and called upon the government to take stronger actions against terrorists, according to a report from the Catholic Information Service for Africa.
“We have watched in recent days as politicians who promised and swore that never again would Kenya walk the sad road of ethnic violence of 2007-2008, move around inciting Kenyans against one another and causing unnecessary tensions,” the Christian leaders said at a press conference.
“We call upon all Kenyans to cease from spreading rumors, incitement and inflammatory and derogatory remarks of any kind that may spiral to ethnic violence due to the volatile atmosphere,” they added.
