EMBU BISHOP BANS POLITI­CIANS FROM FUNDRAIS­ERS

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Catholic Bishop Paul Kariuki has barred churches from invit­ing politi­cians to fundrais­ers as guests of hon­our. He said church fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing halls and com­pounds, should not be used for political gath­er­ings. Kariuki said politi­cians can make con­tri­bu­tions “just like any other per­son”. “Dur­ing Chris­tian fu­ner­als and buri­als, no political cam­paigns nor speeches should be en­ter­tained. Political an­nounce­ments should not be en­ter­tained in the Church dur­ing an­nounce­ment times ,” he said.
