Rev. Canon Rosemary Mbogo this afternoon unveiled her latest book entitled “What Sustains a Spiritual Leader” at the All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi.
The event was attended by the Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Interior Dr. Matiangi, the Head of Anglican Church Rev. Dr. Jackson Ole Sapit, the leader of Government Business in Parliament Senator Samuel Poghisio and civil society leaders such as the CEO of the Global Peace Foundation Kenya Mr. Daniel Juma and many others.
Speaking at the event CS Matiangi thanked Canon Rosemary for her service to the nation noting that she was one of the top religious leaders the President relied on to rally churches in Kenya to support the government’s guidelines on the prevention of Covid 19.
Archbishop Ole Sapit congratulated Canon Rosemary for her hard work and hailed the book which he has already read as timely and offering fundamentals answers to the burning question on leadership and spirituality.
Speaking on the question of whether political leaders could also be referred to as spiritual leaders, Senator Poghisio said that Chapter 10 0f the book addresses that issues saying that the political history of Kenya is awash with instances where religious leaders such as the late Bishop Alexander Muge and Henry Okullu had to step in and fill the void left by political leaders in the country when opposition politics was not very popular.
