Cardinal John Njue, archbishop of Nairobi, Kenya, echoed the same sentiments. He stressed that "cooperation and aid are necessary," but it is also necessary "to respect the independence, point of view, culture and dignity" of African peoples.
"It is not right to give aid conditioned on a change of peoples' values regarding subjects such as abortion and the concept of the family," Cardinal Njue said. "Africans are in need of cooperation but it is necessary to respect their independence, their culture and the dignity of the human person."
