A cleric has urged Kenyans to moderate family planning.

Anglican Church of Kenya Nairobi Bishop Joel Waweru said couples are practising “extreme family planning” that could result in extinction of communities.

He said the notion that families can only have two or three children is putting a strain on some communities and could worsen in a few decades. Waweru said extremely small families will ruin the concept of kinship.

He said children would be unable to understand the importance of relatives in their lives.

Waweru said children brought up in families with a few members are likely to get fewer children.

He was addressing parents during a thanksgiving ceremony at Green Cottage Academy in Murang’a East on Saturday.
