Churches beholden to dirty politicans who give money
Politicians have discovered that many Kenyans worship in churches and believe all that is said and preached there. They have therefore devised ways of befriending the worshippers. One of these ways is attending harambees and donating huge amounts of money thre. This has consequently made the religious leaders shy away from criticising the politicians’ lifestyles and their leadership style because of those donations. Where are the likes of the late Bishop Alexander Muge, Archbishop Ndingi Mwana’a Nzeki and other vocal church leaders who made authorities toe the line? Especially in this looting era, a cleric receiving such amounts without even enquiring the source is a bad idea. It is the high time that churches started cash-generating activities. The churches should establish schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, farms and bookshops. This will help them stop begging donations from politicians.
