Kenya: Bishops decry Ongoing Violence in Dioceses of Ngong and Marsabit

Catholic Bishops in Kenya have, in a collective statement, said they are “deeply concerned” about persistent violent conflicts in two areas covered by the dioceses of Ngong and Marsabit “due to ethnic, clan hatred, competition over resources and leadership wrangles” and described the situation as “barbaric, unfortunate, saddening and regrettable”.

“We, the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) – Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (CJPC), are deeply concerned with continued insecurity and tensions in the Counties of Narok (Transmara and Mau forest) and Marsabit which have led to loss of lives, displacement of people and destruction of properties,” the Bishops in Kenya say in their Friday, July 3 statement.
