Senate Speaker Ekwee Ethuro has praised the Church for helping reduce political temperatures in the country. He said the church prevented the country from taking a dangerous political direction.
The speaker commended the recent contribution of the Church towards reaching a common stand on electoral reforms pushed by the Opposition.
He noted that the Church was a unifying factor that saw the political class sit and agree to use parliamentary approach on the electoral reforms.
“I was impressed with the role of the Church to bring political leaders from Jubilee and the Opposition together to speak with one voice on Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC),” said Ethuro.
He urged politicians to cultivate the spirit of dialogue to resolve disputes that could otherwise hurt the country and that it was unhealthy for leaders to create unfriendly political temperatures by engaging in protests instead of seeking dialogue to settle emerging issues.
The speaker encouraged politicians to shun confrontational politics.
