Archbishop Timothy Ndambuki, the Chairman of the NCCK, has called upon the clergy and church leaders to stand firm and give hope to the nation. “When the post election violence of 2007 / 08 happened, people were asking where was the church. This shows that without the church there is no hope,” the Archbishop emphasized, adding that without hope, people were killed and property destroyed.
“We must therefore be very careful regarding the 2022 or else we will be blamed like we were blamed in 2007 / 08”, Archbishop Ndambuki warned. He further called upon church leaders to resist falling in love with politicians’ money as they would end up selling the church.
Archbishop Ndambuki spoke when preaching during a prayer session to re-dedicate the Jumuia Hospitals Limited, a subsidiary of the NCCK. The Jumuia Hospitals Limited franchise encompasses Jumuia Hospital Huruma, Jumuia Friends Hospital Kaimosi, and Jumuia Hospitals Kakamega OPD.
Speaking during the prayer service, Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui, the General Secretary, informed the intercessors that the NHIF accredited facilities were established with a goal of providing high quality and affordable diagnostics and treatment so as to ease the suffering of local communities. The Jumuia Hospitals, he added, are serving as a model for the faith community on establishment and management of health facilities.
The Dedication Prayer Service, which was streamed live on Facebook, brought together NCCK leadership from the national, regional and county levels, partners, community members, and county and national government representatives.
