YES to a New Constitution but NO to lies and violence

Kenyans have waited for too long for a New Constitution, to accept any plans for delay and plans to block it. The bomb blast at the NO campaigns at Uhuru Park on 13th June was very unfortunate and sad that lives were lost. This was an act of cowardice, from a group that thinks they could confuse Kenyan’s, to think it was from those who support the constitution.

Gone are the days when Kenyans would be fooled by such barbaric acts, “tumechanuka” (we are enlightened). There is no way a constitution can be perfect to accommodate everyone’s lifestyle. It is a Government document and not a Spiritual document. Let our lifestyle be guided by our Spiritual beliefs but the Country be governed by a Government Document.

When confronted by His followers about paying taxes, Jesus answered, “Give to Ceasar that which belongs to Ceasar and to God what is for God (Matthew 21:22). Therefore I feel we should give the government what fits it because it is a document for a society with diverse beliefs.

I think Kenyan church leaders should read the constitution before they waste the congregation's contributions against a constitution they haven't read.
