Anglican African Bishops Conference/Uganda: KENYANS have endorsed a new Constitution which upholds human dignity and promotes EQUALITY FOR ALL!

Kenya's President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga release pigeons as a sign of peace in the capital Nairobi


¨The new Constitution has the best bill of rights that will ensure that all human beings receive equal treatment regardless of their religion, cultural background or individual lifestyle and so on.

¨Kenyans have endorsed a new Constitution, largely supported by human rights activists in the country as the new law that upholds human dignity and promotes equality for all.

More than 6 million Kenyans voted in a referendum on 4 August approving the new constitution while some 2.6million rejected it.

The new constitution replaces the old one established by the colonial leaders and inherited by the country’s first government in 1963 when the country became independent.

Kenya has 12.4m million voters and the majority endorsed the proposed constitution...¨

¨The new Constitution has the best bill of rights that will ensure that all human beings receive equal treatment regardless of their religion, cultural background or individual lifestyle and so on. We are happy and we want the government and the parliament to move fast to ensure that the implementation of the new law is on course, Ms. Florance Jaoko, Chairperson for The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR).

Kenya’s president Mwai Kibaki and prime minister Raila Odinga praised and thanked Kenyans for approving the new constitution saying that it signaled a new beginning for Kenya. HERE

ANGLICAN CHURCH LEADERS HAVE LOST THE TRUST OF KENYANS

MEN OF CLOTH: Anglican bishops led by Archbishop Eliud Wabukala (seated,2nd left) announced their ‘No’ campaign on the proposed law at the All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi

According to the Synovate post-referendum poll, only 19 per cent of those interviewed said they fully trusted Church leaders, compared to 17 per cent who said they fully trusted politicians.

And it gets worse -- 38 per cent said they don't trust Church leaders at all, a bigger number than the 22 per cent who said they don't trust politicians at all. But Church leaders dismissed the notion that their credibility had suffered HERE

Dear Göran my friend, I tried to update your blog on the sidebar and it didn´t work...I then deleted your blog and then added your blog again and it still had the same old posting...is there anyone else having this update of Göran problem? I don´t know what to do (but I intend to cross-post to your latest on Sodom)...thanks, Leonardo
