Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit shared a personal anecdote about how one of his sons surprised him by leaving the car to join youths protesting against the Finance Bill, 2024.

Speaking in Nyahururu on Sunday, Ole Sapit recounted the incident where his son chose to join the anti-finance protests rather than stay with him in the car.

“I was taken aback on Thursday while I was in Narok, attending to my animals’ vaccinations, when we arrived and found young people demonstrating. I had one of my sons in the car,” he explained.

“He suddenly got out and said, ‘I am going to join my peers.'”The Archbishop spoke during the Consecration and Enthronement ceremony of Rev. Maj. Samson Mburu Gachathi as the 3rd Bishop of ACK Nyahururu Diocese.

President William Ruto, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, and over 30 MPs were in attendance during the event.

Archbishop Sapit urged leaders to collaborate with all stakeholders to find solutions to the challenges facing the country. He stressed that the leadership should address the concerns raised by the youth.

“They are our children, they are in our homes. Let us walk together and seek solutions to the issues affecting Kenyans, because we have the capacity to do so with love,” he stressed.Sapit also stateed that despite the ongoing protests by the Gen Zs, they are still their children, and he advocated against using excessive force on them.

He further encouraged the youths to maintain civility during their protests and avoid unlawful behavior.

“I want to emphasize that amidst everything happening, these are children from our families. Let us refrain from using excessive force, and I also urge them not to engage in violence or destruction. Let us remain civil,” Sapit urged.

He called upon President Ruto and the entire leadership of Kenya to prioritize listening and engaging with one another to resolve the contentious issues.

“To Your Excellency and the leadership of our nation, this is a moment for discernment. Rather than speaking excessively, let us focus on listening to one another and extending hands of reconciliation. Let us embrace a spirit of listening more than speaking,” he concluded.
