dc.description.abstract The late Bishop Alexander Muge of the Anglican Church of Kenya, Diocese of Eldoret, made a remarkable contribution to the struggle for social justice in Kenya in the 1980s. However, his contribution to the struggle for social justice in Kenya has not been studied, hence the need for the present study. The purpose of the study was to establish the extent of Muge’s contribution to the making of Kenya’s history. The objectives of the study were to explore Muge’s early life, to examine Muge’s role and contribution in the struggle for social justice in Kenya in the 1980s, and to evaluate Muge’s efforts towards empowering the Kenyan society socially and economically. Liberation theology, as understood and used by theologians in Latin America in the early 1900s, was applied to exploration of Muge’s struggle for social justice and the economic empowerment of the Kenyan society. Knowledge on Muge’s contribution to the making of Kenya’s history as well as being one of the architects of the struggle for democracy in Kenya, underlie the significance and justificaion of the study. Data was collected from both primary and secondary sources. Archival and oral sources were significant in generating data. Purposive sampling, especially the snowball technique were used to identify interviewees. Analysis and interpretation of data employed the historical method. The findings of the study fill a knowledge gap about Bishop Muge’s contribution to the cause of justice and socio-economic empowerment of the Kenyan society. en_US
