Archbishop Wabukala expressed confidence that the church’s neutral stance on politics will not change even after he leaves office.
“There should be no cause for alarm. A competent transition team is firmly in charge,” he said.
Those said to have expressed interest in the position are Dr Christopher Ruto (Diocese of Eldoret), Bishop Moses Masaba (Mbeere), Bishop Julius Wanyoike (Thika), Bishop Joseph ole Sapit (Kericho), Bishop Joel Waweru (Nairobi), Bishop James Ochiel (South Nyanza), and Lawrence Dena of Malindi.
However, it is only after April 1 that the official list will be known.
