King Charles III Meets Religious Leaders To Promote Peace On His Last Leg Of Kenya Visit

Must Read

On the last day of his visit to Kenya, King Charles III met with religious leaders on Friday, to encourage peace in Mombasa.

The King met leaders of the Christian, Hindu, Muslim, and African Traditional Faiths as he visited Mombasa’s Anglican church and the oldest mosque in the East African area on a wet Friday morning.

It was 120 years ago that the Coast Interfaith Council of Clerics was founded. At the Mombasa Memorial Cathedral, the king—who is formally the Supreme Governor of the Church of England—unveiled a plaque commemorating his visit.

The consequences of radicalization and terrorist acts have been felt throughout the area.

Plans for Charles and Queen Camilla to travel to Fort Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on an electric tuktuk were disrupted by inclement weather.

The king and queen were given a traditional dance by the coastal Mijikenda population at the fort, following which they boarded an electric motorised rickshaw, or tuktuk, for a picture op.

Charles’s first state visit to a Commonwealth nation as a monarch came to an end as President William Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto waved the royal couple off at Mombasa’s Moi International Airport.

The four days of the King’s visit were devoted to programmes supporting young people, technology, the creative arts, and the fight against climate change.

The four days of the tour were linked to the past. The late Queen Elizabeth II, mother of Charles, discovered she had become the monarch of the United Kingdom while on a game preserve in the then-British territory of East Africa in 1952.
