The government of Kenya is resorting to the assistance of evangelical pastors as part of the solution to the crisis in Haiti. It seems that the pastors have even communicated with several of the gang leaders, including the infamous “Barbecue” and are serving as a conduit for effective communication between the UN mission and the gangs, as reported in the media.

One of the pastors, who went to the United States to deal directly with the Haitian community there, Serge Musasilwa, told reporters that there is hope of a peaceful solution to the current situation. According to the report in Reuters, all their attempts to communicate with Jimmy Cherizier (Barbecue) have failed.

Using church leaders to broker a peace deal with the Haitian gangs is futile. If religious influence had the potential to bring peace, there are plenty of religious organizations in Haiti to broker a deal with the gangs and it would have been done long ago. They know the gangs better than Kenyan pastors.

There is something going on with the Kenyan government and their role in the intervention. I don’t know if it’s internal political problems or problems with the UN. I thought they might be holding out for more money but I don’t think that’s the problem. The only people benefiting from the delays are the gangs.

The time for the Kenyans to shite or get off the pot is long past.

Pastors?
Damn, they're really grasping at straws now aren't they?
