Religion and Politics in Kenya: Essays in Honor of a Meddlesome Priest
Palgrave Macmillan, Sep 15, 2009 - Political Science - 294 pages
Using a modern prophet to a nation, Bishop David Gitari, as a lens, this book examines contrasting political initiatives and responses by Christian and Islamic leaders. It represents an unusual and exciting opposition between church and state that collapsed after Gitari retired as Archbishop, but might yet be renewed. It exposes the political mosaic of postcolonial Kenya, teasing out the considerable religious dimension of Kenyan and African politics, of which the West has lost sight.
