President Uhuru Kenyatta was Thursday part of the “Bibilia Kwa Wote” initiative, a project that is geared towards ensuring that communities have the opportunity to read the Bible in the language they understand.
This is the surest way to ensure that the Bible speaks to their heart, Kenyatta said.
“I do not wear my religion on my sleeve, but I am a strong believer and I can speak of what God has done for me in my own life.”
He added: “I am proud to lead a God fearing nation.”
Kenyatta told Kenyans to strive to match their words and actions with their faith, while remembering to put God first.
“When we live a life that reflects our beliefs, we will be closer to conquering the various challenges that we face as a nation.”
He said tolerance and acceptance are among the hallmarks of the nation.
Kenyatta said he was therefore glad to see Kenyans from different faiths united in supporting this noble initiative.
“Let us continue to maintain this unity even in other interests.”
