Murang’a Woman Representative, Sabina Chege has called on Kenyan politicians to respect the church by avoiding politicking on church podiums.
“We have dishonoured the church, we have made the church like a market place, where we can speak anything. We can give our stories on how we helped people and how they have forgotten us or how people had one shoe. It is not right,” the health chair of the parliamentary committee said.
Ms. Chege urged Kenyan politicians to refrain from throwing jabs at each other while at the altar and respect that it’s a place of worship.
“If you want to do any political statements, or hitting back, undermining others, don’t do that at the altar of God. Move out and have a political rally where you can be able to speak the issues of politics outside the altar,” Ms. Chege told Citizen TV at the National Prayer Breakfast.
This week on Tuesday, the Machakos Governor, Dr. Alfred Mutua also criticized politicians’ behavior of taking politics to funerals.
“Some people wait for someone to die so that they can use the audience that has come to pay homage to the deceased and the funeral as a platform for insulting others and to engage in empty politics. That is not only selfish and greedy but also wrong and sinful,” Governor Mutua said.
The Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader asked Kenyans to reject such leaders.
