Expression of satisfaction on peace protocols in Sudan

Letter to the Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Kenya,
27 May, 2004


Dear Honourable Musyoka,

May I share with you the joy of the entire fellowship of churches all over the
world, united under the leadership of the World Council of Churches. We are
deeply gratified by the tenacity and resilience demonstrated by you during the
delicate peace process on Sudan. We in the ecumenical movement express our solidarity
with all those who worked tirelessly to ensure that the signing of the basic
protocols took place in earnest. The Government of Kenya has made the investment
for peace through IGAD not only for the people of Sudan but for the whole
region of the Horn of Africa. We commend your Government for the good signs
of a new and promising beginning for the people in the region.

We trust that the initiatives of our member churches in the region will complement
your efforts so that peace continues to flourish for the good and wellbeing
of the people of Sudan. As church and state we are all called to affirm the
human dignity and democratic values of all peoples. We assure you of our prayers
and gratitude to God to continue sustaining you in good health. Kindly pass our
regards to His Excellency the President.

May the blessings and peace of God embrace you and the people of Kenya for
generations to come!

Rev. Dr Samuel Kobia
General Secretary
