Synod rejects campaign to split ACK Mbeere Diocese

From Kenya-

Delegates from the 62 parishes who met at the Siakago diocese headquarters ruled that the faction pushing for the split neither represented the rest of the congregation nor did the issues they raised.

They also resolved that the faction did not follow the church’s procedure in agitating for the split. Each of the 62 parishes had sent three delegates - a priest and two lay leaders - to the crucial meeting.

The church’s lawyer, Wairimu Rugaita, and key leaders and professionals from the region attended.

Bishop Moses Masamba, who read a statement on behalf of the synod, said the allegations by some Christians that the church leadership favoured the north side of Mbeere diocese were false. He said the church’s development projects and resources were equitably distributed in all the parishes.
