Welcome to Kenya

Today, Dr Aloys Otieno Ojore, from Tangaza University gave a fascinating view of Kenya from a social, political, economic and religious point of view.

The first part of his presentation provided some fascinating statistics with regard to the population and the economic situation in the country.

He highlighted especially the level of corruption that exists in the political arena as was confirmed by recent reports on the BBC of tens of billions of dollars unaccounted for that were originally designated for building projects.

He stressed the need for religious to identify with the poor and to become professionally trained so as to fulfil their role adequately.  He stressed the fact that often the Church can be more on the side of the wealthy rather than on the side of the poor.  This, he stressed, needs to change.
