The Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) has highlighetd the church’s commitment to foster good governance, peace, justice, healing and reconciliation among Kenyans as we approach the electioneering 2022.

Led by the church’s Archbishop Rev. Jackson Ole Sapit the religious leaders appealed for transparency, accountability and inclusivity in the governance processes at both National and county levels, and called on leaders to create a conducive environment for dialogue and promote politics of inclusivity, tolerance and peace to avert the perennial cycle of electoral violence.

Sapit made the remarks during a two days conference on peace and security held in Kisumu County this week, which was convened by the ACK. The Anglican Church in partnerships with the county and national government departments and the NCIC has been advocating for social justice for Kenyan citizens for many years in a bid to create a peaceful society that is beautiful to live in.

The peace initiatives and processes employed by the church include establishing and strengthening local community peace structures, training of local peace actors, mediation, and protection of persons in conflict. Other measures are reintegration, trauma healing and reconciliation through structured community participation.

These approaches have enabled communities in conflict to engage each other and come up with homegrown solutions to the triggers of conflict, thus promoting peace and healing processes in some of the hotspots within the country.
