Governor Joseph ole Lenku recently electrified church goers when he said he sought to present his leadership ‘burden’ before God.
Lenku, who had been given a few minutes to greet the congregation at Redemption Church, stood up and greeted them before wearing a wide smile and said, “Leaders are not immune to problems.”
The Church in Kajiado first went into silence, and then on deciphering what their leader said, it burst in ecstatic applause as Lenku explained that it is the burden of leadership that drove him to seek heavenly intervention so he can lead his people to prosperity.
“The interests of the people are in my heart and that is why we, as leaders, also come to Church to bring our burdens to the Lord,” quipped the Governor without batting an eye.
While at the podium, the Governor took the holy chance given by the Church to call on residents of the region to pray for the political and administrative leadership of the county.
The governor urged the congregants to rally their support behind their leaders since they have bestowed upon them the enormous responsibility of selfless service.
He reiterated his commitment towards actualising his campaign agenda in line with the work his administration has already started in all spheres of operation.
His deputy, Martin Moshisho, expressed his satisfaction with the way development initiatives were shaping up in the county, adding that the campaign pledges made by the Governor are being realised progressively.
County Assembly Speaker, Johnson Osoi, who was also present, lauded the servitude of the current County Government, adding that the cordial relationship between the assembly and the executive arm of the government has borne the enactment of laws and policies that are beneficial to the livelihood of the people of Kajiado.
MCAs, county ministers and the clergy from other churches were among other leaders who attended the service.
