'Politics' and 'power' in the Kenyan public discourse and recent events: the Church of the Province of Kenya (CPK)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The Anglican Church in Kenya, in large part through its various social, educational, welfare, and economic organizations and services, had emerged, by the beginning of the 1990s, as the central advocate of social and political change. Moreover, it was instrumental in generating the controversy over democracy and the holding of the first multi-party elections in Kenya since independence in 1963. The article thus traces the unique role of the CPK as the primary organization capable of mobilizing large segments of Kenyan society.
