Speaking on Sunday during a live Holy Mass at the Holy Family Basilica aired by KBC Channel 1, Father Calistus Nyagilo said greed has now led to under development despite Counties having resources at their disposal.

He said elected leaders have developed a tendency of looking after themselves first and using money meant for the people in satisfying their own needs.

“We have enough resources for everyone’s need, but we do not have enough for everyone’s greed,” he said

In his sermon, on Jesus feeding more than 5,000 people with only five loaves of bread and two fish, the priest said our leaders should strive to share the little resources we have equitably.
