Mwingi Central Mp Dr.Gideon Mulyungi has urged the church to remain impartial on matters of politics and spur unity among Kenyans arguing that church is the strongest connection between politicians and God.
Speaking on Sunday during a funds drive at Messiahship church in Mwingi township Mulyungi said that unless there is a law enacted by Members of parliament in parliament to bar politicians from attending funds drive in churches he will continue assisting churches in Mwingi and the larger Kitui.
“Those who have been saying that politicians go to church to enhance politics and contribute stolen funds from the government should stop and enhance unity among Kenyans”, added Mulyungi.
According to Messiahship Church Archbishop Julius Nyerere there are so many institutions that are funded by the government of Kenya unlike church which is not funded so there is no problem with politicians giving their free will contributions in churches.
“Church is the pillar that holds our leaders especially during the times of crisis where all politicians turn back to church for spiritual support so I don’t see any problem with politicians supporting church during funds drive”, added Nyerere.
