A section of the Clergy says it will not sit down and see the country plunge into chaos due to political intolerance by some leaders.

Addressing the Media in Meru on Wednesday, the President of the Evangelical Churches in Kenya, Bishop Mark Kariuki, said the Clergy will not sit back and watch as a section of politicians bent on plunging the county into chaos in the run up to the 2017 elections engage in hate speech.

According to the Bishop, religious leaders will lead the country into holding a major prayer rally.

He added that the religious leaders have also planned a prayer and fasting period that will run from July 1st – 21st, 2016 at the Kasarani International Sports Centre.

Bishop Kariuki said the church has a pivotal role of ensuring leaders elected are accountable to the people for smooth running of the nation.
