Nyeri Archdiocese Archbishop Antony Muheria has responded to claims that he should run for president of Kenya because he is one of the humble leaders in the country. Muheria revealed that he will remain as an Archbishop to continue serving the people of Kenya through the church.
While responding to the question asked during an interview on Citizen TV, he stated that he will continue working closely with the Conference of Catholic Bishops to make sure Christians get civic education which will enable them to elect the relevant leaders.
“The bishops will give profiles on the kind of leaders we should and should not elect. We will call out leaders on moral grounds and not personality because we don’t want to advise about political positions and choices. We want to advise about the style of leadership, respect, and decorum,” Archbishop Muheria stated.
He also revealed that God gave him the grace to handle the man who broke the protocol during Kibaki’s funeral service in Nyayo. “I didn’t do that because of any plan it was just an instinctive reaction but the young man as soon I looked at him I saw he was agitated or a bit deranged. He didn’t look dangerous or a person who was a threat and I thought he needed the consolation at least to feel comforted,” he said. He also revealed that the young man might be stressed and thus he needs someone to attend to him and address deeper issues that might arise from mental problems.

Muheria reiterated that it’s a time for a new style of leadership accomodating and listening to one another. “It is time for a new style of leadership of attitude of accommodation and not confrontation. Let us go to this competition with a feeling of competition and not confrontation. Remember our nation is bigger than anyone.” Archbishop Anthony Muheria is the brother of Central Bank of Kenya Governor Patrick Njoroge.
