President Uhuru Kenyatta has commended outgoing Anglican Archbishop Eliud Wabukala for his leadership which has ensured peace and harmony in the Church and among Kenyans.

Speaking during a farewell party at Wabukala’s residence, the President urged Kenyans to emulate the retiring Archbishop. “The peace and the harmony that has prevailed in the Church is a great legacy that he leaves behind,” Uhuru said. “Indeed it is a foundation on which those that come after you will need to build on.”

The President challenged Kenyans to always leave institutions better than they found them, when given the opportunity to serve. “There is a new bishop coming and the Anglican community will continue.

No one is here permanently, but Kenya and her people shall always be here. What we need to do when given opportunity is to ensure you leave people more prosperous than you found them,” Uhuru said.
