Suspended Cabinet Minister Charity Ngilu broke into tears as scores of clergy men prayed for her tribulations with the Jubilee government.
The former CS who arrived in a convoy of vehicles at Kitui Town Muslim Secondary School playground for the prayers cried when Bishop Daniel Nzoka of Kitui Revival Church asked her what she wanted God to do for her.
Ngilu who had been invited to kneel at the pulpit pulled out a handkerchief to wipe away tears as the man of God prayed for her. She later composed herself and said she did not imagine that after campaigning for the Jubilee government she would be experiencing “what is happening” now.
Ngilu accused Jubilee of vilifying some of its members but was optimistic she would win the cases facing her in court and return to the government. “Some of us do not know what we did to be taken to court but with time justice will prevail. We are saying the government must be answerable to the will of the people’’, she said.
Asked what her message to the government was Ngilu added: “I want a government that can fulfill the promises it made to Kenyans during the campaign and a government that minds other peoples’ welfare’’, she told the congregation.
