A look the composition of Kenya’s present church's leadership leaves one wondering whether the men (sorry no women so far) of the cloth have borrowed everything divisive from our politicians. Starting with the Catholic Church as the largest denomination you get all her dioceses headed by HOMEBOY clergy. Leaves you wondering must the archbishop share the same tongue as his congregation? Or better still can the flock be only effectively served in their mother tongue?
As a nation Kenya is so tribally programmed so much so that odd happenings are often taken as the norm. Ages are gone when a Mr. Mwita would be the head teacher for Mogotio primary school. Instead almost all rural primary schools are staffed by homeboys and ladies who operate from their ancestral homes. This must be the most cogent recipe against national integration. The young minds have been gifted with the most able hands to implant TRIBAL SUPREMACY. No wonder some secondary readily and shamelessly prescribe local tribal rites for their form ones.
Moi may have perfected the art of tribally aligning every region in Kenya. But only our low benchmark and failure to think outside the box justifies the sectarian defence of the present incompetence. What is more, Kenyans unequivocally united in breaking from this destructive streak in 2002. But again here we are more than six years later comparing between Lucifer and the devil who is more deadly.
A church worth its name and calling is a beckon of integrity and SELFLESSNESS. The principled, steady and vocal Kenyan clergy of the 1990s makes the present TRIBAL PRIESTS look like devils undergoing slow painful conversion. No clergy in the present Kenya is beyond reproach. They all supplicate to the whims of the tribal king ruling their regional roost. Leaves you wondering whether Rome and the Vatican is following suit or they are innocent enforcers of selfish local advice.
