Religion drives people's behaviour and actions in a more productive direction
t is of paramount importance that our people must be led from an opinion of Godliness. Peace, tranquillity, unity, love and passion are virtues fostering co-existence and development. At the peak of the Post Election Violence, our Constituency was experiencing untold peace despite the obvious fact that we are a cosmopolitan constituency. In regard to these facts, I am fostering development through appreciation of our religious institutions. To our Muslim brothers, to our Christians and all other religions envisaged in our supreme laws of our land, we must live together in Kibwezi. You will all agree with me that religion drives people's behaviour and actions in a more productive direction, it is not possible to separate religion from development. A peaceful co-existence of various religious groups within a country remains the essential prerequisite for growth and prosperity in today's global village. Religion and development are seemingly inseparable. Conceptually religions provide believers a guideline about life and the life-after and thus provide much-needed incentives for indulging in productive activities during lifetime. Religions can be seen as a promoter of growth as they direct people towards honesty, discipline, hard work, education, thriftiness (leading to savings essential for investment and thereby growth) and absenteeism from harmful activities. Hon. Prof. Kaloki efforts in religion have been through participation in conducting harambee's to construct churches, buying music instruments among other initiatives.
