Dictatorship, tribalism rock Anglican Church – Bishop on the spot

From Kenya-

A storm is brewing in the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK), diocese of Nairobi, following the exit of five clerics over blighting leadership wrangles.

The diocese head Rt Rev Bishop Joel Waweru, has been accused of dictatorship, ethnicity, nepotism and favouritism following the departure of the six clerics over vicious boardroom tussles.

The five are David Mutua Kiiru, Kennedy Kinyua, Eli Seka K’owunda, Isaac Mbogo Rukungu and Agnes Nyokabi Kuria, whom the faithful claim were edged out for leaders preferred by Waweru who is said to run the church like a personal fiefdom and doesn’t entertain contrary opinion.

Clerics who spoke to The Nairobian sought anonymity for fear of reprisals as the bishop has instilled fear among senior members who dare to oppose him on financial and spiritual matters.
