Siaya County Commissioner Jim Njoka has called on clerics and other religious leaders to provide views on church regulations.
He urged the religious leaders to work together with the Presidential Taskforce that was established to look into reforms in the sector.
Moreover, clerics have been called on to take part in the ongoing public participation exercise by attending their sittings or by sending their views by way of a memorandum so that their views are not left out.
Njoka while speaking during a religious leaders’ meeting that was hosted by the Cabinet Secretary for ICT Eliud Owalo at his home in Rarieda constituency further urged the clerics to make sober submissions, and not act from emotions.
Njoka also highlighted the need for the clerics to participate in such engagements.
He further stated that the ongoing process is very important as it will help to weed out rogue preachers who are involved in criminal activities while hiding behind the scriptures.
Nonetheless, the taskforce established by President William Ruto to investigate churches has been tasked with the responsibility of identifying gaps that have allowed extremist religious organizations in Kenya.
