Religious leaders have raised concerns over the recent mysterious deaths of young people in the country.
Led by Bishop John Ngunjiri Ithondeka of Gospel Evangelistic Churches of Kenya, the men of the cloth are now sensing something wrong in society and are calling for parents and society at large to up their parenting responsibility.
Speaking in Waseges Ward, Subukia Sub County in Nakuru during a family thanksgiving ceremony organized by Bishop Jonah Kariuki, the clergy said it was so worrying for society to continue losing young people in mysterious ways.
While calling on the government to investigate the various mysterious deaths that have claimed the lives of young people in the country, the men of cloth also called on the church to continue praying for the nation.
“Whatever is happening in the country is worrying as we see lives of young people being lost. The government must step in and we as a church we should also pray very hard” said Bishop Ngunjiri.
Bishop Ngunjiri also took an issue with the Kibra MP’s move to have Bhang legalized in the country.
According to the clergy, if the Parliament approves the motion and it becomes law then the young people will be greatly affected.
“We should not even think of legalizing bhang as that is one way of killing the young generation,” he said.
Sentiments echoed by host Bishop Jonah Kariuki who said the society should be empowered through development agenda.
During the occasion, Bishop Jonah donated foot attire among them sleepers and shoes to women in the area.
Bishop Jonah who has aspirations for the Waseges Ward MCA seat also called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to consider the process of titling for the people of Keriko village in Waseges who have been fighting for the documents for the last 48 years.
“We have been in this area for the last 48 years but with no title deeds and we are fighting so much to see to it that when the President comes here we have the documents,” said Bishop Jonah.
The occasion was also attended by Jubilee Regional Director Joseph Mathai and media personality Prof.Ngugi Njoroge among others.
