National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi says religion should not be used to promote hatred but peace and tolerance among Kenyans.

“As people of faith, we are summoned to push against those who try to distort our religion and religions,” he said at the National Prayer Breakfast in Nairobi Friday.

“In today’s world, for example, when hate groups have their own Twitter accounts and other forms technology in the cyber space, it can even be harder to counter attack such intolerance, but God compels us to try,” Muturi urged.

“We should start by the basic humility. That study point of faith is not being so full of ourselves; that you are right and God only speaks to us and not to others.”
