Let me join fellow Christians across the country and around the world in celebrating this year’s Easter. In remembrance of the persecution of Jesus Christ, His death and ultimate resurrection, we find a deeper conviction as a people to lead a life of humility, honesty, righteousness, and kindness.
We commemorate the suffering of Jesus Christ because through his crucifixion, light triumphed over darkness and God exemplified his boundless love for us. In reciprocation of this love, let us extend kind gestures to our families, friends, and the less privileged in our society.
Never in the recent history of our country have we ever had a greater call as a people to be compassionate and empathetic to one another as at these difficult times. The 3rd wave of Covid-19 pandemic is testing our collective resilience as a nation.
However, our greatest source of strength and perseverance has been walking with each other in the best of times and the darkest of hours.
Therefore, let us be each other’s keepers this Easter and even beyond. The economic turmoil, mental stress and physical anguish this pandemic is exerting on the people is dire. It is time to join hands and alleviate each other’s suffering as the best way to celebrate Christ’s ultimate sacrifice and redemption of mankind.
To all those who have lost their brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, relatives, friends, and even colleagues during this pandemic, you are in our thoughts and prayers during this Easter and we convey our heartfelt condolences
In this regard, we pay profound tribute to our nurses, doctors, clinical officers, and other front-line health workers who have sacrificed their personal comfort and safety; the warmth of their families; and the company of their friends to save humanity from the ravages of Covid-19. You are the heroes of this pandemic and we celebrate you during this Easter.
Happy Easter and may God bless Kenya.
