African Evangelicals Form Political Party
Thought religion and politics was in the U.S. were too closely aligned? Check out Keya's Agano Party. "Agano (Kiswahili for Covenant) and another three parties sympathetic to Christian ideals are seeking to have "200 people of integrity" voted into parliament in next year's general election."
Evangelicals, Penecostals, the Presbyterian church like the idea, but Methodists, Anglicans, and Catholics don't. "The Church is supposed to be the conscience of society. When Kenyans are misled, it should provide guidance, but not take leadership," the Rev. Wellington Sanga, the secretary of the Methodist Church of Kenya.
