NCCK Implores The Government To Rethink The 2024/2025 Finance Bill


The National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) has urged the government to rethink the finance bill to reduce the country’s high cost of living.

Speaking after a two-day induction at Gitoro pastoral centre in Meru town, NCCK Upper Eastern Region Chairperson, Rev. Dr. Nicholas Mutwiri said that the government should remove the oppressive and suppressive taxes that will further increase the cost of living.

Taxation, he said, should be considerate of the citizens’ needs and not burden them as well as their business enterprises.

He said the Church’s stand is to advocate for peace and their position remains that the finance bill 2024 should inspire hope for better living standards and not bring frustrations.

‘People together form the nation. Therefore, it is important to make laws, plans, and policies that focus on uplifting the living standards of the people,’ said Revered Mutwiri.

On the transition of the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) to the Social Health Insurance Fund (SHIF), Reverend Mutwiri sa
id that the change of the name should not necessarily mean a change in the delivery of services adding the initiative should benefit the people and not slice the benefits offered by the previous system.

He also said that the government needs to work with church leaders in the fight against illicit brews.

‘Alcohol and drug abuse have become rampant in many parts of the country thus affecting families, leading to household fights and broken families.’

‘The lost belong to the church for deliverance but before that, the government needs to tighten its belt in the fight against illicit brews,’ said Rev. Mutwiri.

Meanwhile, the Council called on the government and stakeholders to reconstitute the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and accord justice to the country’s constitution.

‘The delay in the reconstitution of IEBC has led to some electoral areas remaining without elected representatives. Failing to reconstitute the IEBC for electoral dignity is denying the citizens the right to have e
lected representatives and also their right to vote is infringed,’ said Reverend Mutwiri.

Ethiopia Working to Combat Deforestation, Degradation and Climate Change through Various Intiatives


Addis Ababa: The Government of Ethiopia is working on landscape restoration through various initiatives to combat deforestation, degradation and climate change, Ethiopian Forestry Development Director-General Kebede Yimam said today.

The nation has also developed policies, strategies and plans to protect foresters, he stated, recalling the Green Legacy Initiative as one of government efforts to combat environmental degradation, deforestation, and climate change.

Therefore, the director-general stressed that it’s important to work in collaboration with various stakeholders for effective land management and restoration in a research based and holistic manner.

Kebede made the remark at a workshop on disseminating research findings and policy implications of landscape approach and climate-smart agriculture.

The primary goal of the workshop organized by International Water Management Institute (IWMI) is to promote policy actions for eco-regional and landscape development approaches and climate-smart agricultur
e and to share important research findings in order to hasten Ethiopia’s transformation to a sustainable food system.

IWMI Principal Researcher, Amare Haile Selassie said the purpose of today’s workshop is dissemination of research findings on landscape and climate-smart agriculture for over one decade in Bale Zone and in Central Rift Valley area.

‘We have been collecting data, we have been analyzing those data and interpreting them in a way that gives lessons for development partners working on implementation of development activities, and to enable adaptive learning in this whole process of natural resource landscape and climate-smart agriculture implementation activities,’ he stated.

As a result, the workshop highlighted the pivotal role in promoting climate-smart agriculture, sustainable landscape management, and nature-based solutions for equitable sustainable development in Ethiopia.

The principal researcher further pointed out that IWMI is working with various development partners in implementing o
ne of its major interventions — the solar pump for irrigation initiative, that has been under implementation since 2016.

According to him, the solar pump irrigation system has been benefiting many small-holder farmers in different parts of the country.

‘There are so many activities that we are implementing with NGOs, as part of Bounty of the Basket (Ye Lemat Tirufat), Green Legacy as well as in climate smart agriculture. If you take the wheat irrigation, this is the government direction, we are complementing this very clearly.’

Farm Africa Ethiopia Country Office Director, Shewit Emmanuel said on her part that the organization has been working in different regions of Ethiopia to increase the production and productivity of farmers and pastoralists.

In doing so, ‘we have reduced deforestation by more than 59 percent just in Bale Zone and other regions. Now the community has a high awareness on what kind of forest friendly kind of livelihood they can implement and take ownership of the protection.’

Thus,
‘this workshop is about documenting what we have to document so that we can scale out.’
