In church, during the Good Friday service the clergy preached messages of peace and hope urging parishioners to be selfless when serving humanity and lead by example.
Father Thiga asked politicians to guide Kenyans in the right direction during campaigns and parishioners to be wary of those that will take advantage of them.
“Jesus Christ come to save the world through suffering and death. Let us be selfless and draw lessons from his life as Christians, and be wary of those politicians who will be using messages of division as we approach the general elections” he said.
