State-Church partnership key to nation building: Uhuru by Kenyans247(1): Sun 25, October, 2020 03:57pm
President Uhuru Kenyatta has recognised the role of the Church in nation building, saying religious leaders should consistently engage in social activities that promote the public’s well being.

He spoke in Nyeri County on Sunday during the centennial celebrations of the ordination of the pioneer group of 43 church elders - the First African Elders.

The ceremony took place at the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) in Tumutumu, Mathira.

The head of State recognised the PCEA for its work in spreading the gospel and promoting health and education in the society.

He noted that it is through the church's investment in educational facilities that the founding fathers of the nation, among them Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, were able to acquire the education they needed to liberate and serve post-independence Kenya.

"They treat the soul, the mind and the body. That is a true partnership between the State and church. We should commit ourselves to serving and everything else will fall into place for the better of this country," he said,

During the church service, the President steered clear of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) debate, saying he will speak politics during Monday’s official launch of the report at Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.

“Today is the elder’s day. We will talk and reveal [more] on Monday,” he said.
