The National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) Secretary General Canon Peter Karanja has asked church leaders to take great interest and participate in the ongoing talks about political reforms in the country.

Canon Karanja, who was speaking during the Christian and Scientific Association workshop held in Ruiru said politicians alone cannot be trusted with the political reforms process, and therefore there is need for church leaders to take part , and bring sanity to the process.

On the second day of the three-day workshop which brought together about 200 participants from 40 local and international organisations, the NCCK Secretary General peter karanja challenged church leaders to rise to the occasion, as the clamor for constitutional changes gathers momentum.

Political leaders are currently torn between supporting changes in the constitution as proposed by the Ekuru Aukot-led Punguza Mizigo initiative or what will be proposed in the much-anticipated Building Bridges Initiative..

Away from the political changes, the Christian and Scientific Association of Kenya, which organised the event, is also keen on bridging the gap between science, religion and culture.

According to the project manager, Professor Francis Muregi the association is set to ensure that the discussion of issues affected by the three will be taken to the citizens.

This is the third time that the workshop is being held, and it is spearheaded by Mount Kenya University.
