Kenyan vice president says 'fidelity' key to stopping HIV spread

Kenya's vice-president has told leaders of Africa's Anglican churches that fidelity holds the key to halting the spread of the HIV virus on the continent, reports Ecumenical News International.

"That means returning to the basics by strict observance of our values as Christians or whatever persuasion," Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka said in Nairobi at the start of a 1-2 September HIV/AIDS consultation of Anglican archbishops, former heads of state, members of civil society and experts on the pandemic.

Archbishop Ian Ernest of the Indian Ocean Province in Mauritius and the chairperson of CAPA said since the Church is influential in Africa, it is crucial for its leaders to offer informed leadership based on reality, and not on moral judgement.
