New chapter for anglican church

From Kenya-

The church acquired a notoriety in the 1980s and 1990s when its leaders, such as David Gitari, Henry Okullu and Alexander Muge rubbed the political establishment up the wrong way

The Anglican Church of Kenya will be having a new archbishop by this weekend to replace the outgoing Eliud Wabukala. All eyes are trained on the premier protestant congregation and the man it will choose to lead it to the next decade.

So far, bishops James Ochiel (South Nyanza), Moses Masaba (Mbeere), Joseph ole Sapit (Kericho), Joel Waweru (Nairobi) and Lawrence Dena (Malindi) have thrown their hats into the ring. Any one of them will be handed the archbishopric crosier to lead the Kenyan Anglicans.

ACK has been a political hotbed for many years and as such, its elections attract lots of interest among the political class. Already there are talks that both Cord and Jubilee power brokers are circling overhead looking to plant a man favourable to their causes to head the church, a claim the church leadership denies.
