Interior PS praises the church for huge support for education

Interior PS Raymond Omollo converses with Kisumu Senator Tom Ojienda. The PS lauded the church for its noble role in driving the agenda in the education sector.

Interior Principal Secretary (PS) Dr Raymond Omollo has lauded the church for the critical role it plays in supporting education programmes across the country.

Omollo noted that churches have schools all over the country which have played a major role in the development of the country.

The PS said many people from poor backgrounds have been able to pursue education through church programmes.

He said both the church and State play very complimentary roles which cannot be overemphasized.

Omollo similarly said the church has also invested in hospitals and health facilities spread across the country to take care of the welfare of Kenyans.

PS Omollo emphasized that their efforts have significantly complemented government initiatives to strengthen both sectors.

He noted that apart from these, the church has also played a pivotal role in fostering peaceful coexistence through spiritual nourishment and various programmes run by different denominations.

“Through teachings, morals and economic empowerment programmes run by the church, a lot of gains have been made in keeping the country secure,” he added.

Omollo was speaking in Kisumu over the weekend when he joined the clergy and congregants at Migosi SDA Church for a thanksgiving Sabbath service celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Migosi AYS Alumni.

He assured residents that the government will continue to partner with the church to strengthen various programmes and promote national unity.

The PS further noted that as the PS in charge of security, part of his work is to keep the country secure and maintain law and order, emphasizing that the church has a role to play in that because its teachings complement these efforts.

The PS was accompanied by Kisumu Senator Tom Ojienda, MPs Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), Mark Nyamita (Uriri), and a host of MCAs.
