As a new international initiative seeks to stop child marriages, church-based centres in southern Kenya are an example of faith organisations providing a haven for girls and educating communities about the issue - writes Fredrick Nzwili.
Former US President Bill Clinton's Clinton Global Initiative on 20 September announced in New York a partnership of organisations worldwide seeking to spotlight the dangers of marriage for girls under age 18 years.
Among those introducing the project, called 'Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage,' were Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu of South Africa and Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland.
In the developing world, one in three girls is married before the age of 18, usually marking an end to their schooling and exposing them to higher risk of injury and death due to early sexual activity and childbirth, said the announcement. The practice is estimated to affect 10 million girls.

A lecturer at the University of Nairobi was yesterday charged with stalking a Catholic nun. Gatune Mwaura Kingstone denied the charge of creating a disturbance by running after Sister Josephine Warua Kariuki, of Our Lady of Peace Church and taking her photographs without her consent.
Warua, 48, said she noticed the man as she was walking by a hospital on her way to the post office. She said when she realised he was taking her photos with a digital camera, she told him to stop but he refused saying he would continue.
An altercation ensued attracting a crowd of people. By the time police arrived at the scene, Mwaura had reportedly deleted the pictures from the camera. He was arrested and booked at the Karen police station and the camera was impounded.
He denied the charge and was released on a Sh10,000 bond by Kibera principal magistrate Frida Nyakundi. The hearing will be on October 31 but will be mentioned in two weeks.

A number of US-based companies dealing in high-tech products are lining up to enter the Kenyan market over the next six months as America races to protect its share of the East African market from Asian countries.
Chinese, South Korean and Indian exports to Kenya have grown steadily in recent years at the expense of the US and other western nations.
This shift in trade ties is behind America’s rising concern over Asia’s growing power in East Africa’s largest economy as recently revealed in leaked diplomatic cables.
Now, the US’s chamber of Commerce is scouring for opportunities for its firms with bias in the services sectors where its sees little competition from Asian countries that flooded the Kenyan economy with low cost electronics, clothes and toys.
