The President of Madagascar has called on churches in Africa to take a frontline role in addressing the country's problems. During a trip to Nairobi, President Marc Ravalomanana said Africa was teeming with millions of Christians who comprised an extensive network which could lend itself to taking a lead where social mobilisation was needed. Deputy President of the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar as well as his country, Mr Ravalomanana stressed that he was first and foremost a Christian and that he depended on God's grace to lead his people. "In return therefore, I must also serve my Lord," he added.
