Governor Charity Ngilu has lauded The Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop The Most Reverend Dr. Jackson Ole Sapit’s ban on politicians speaking in ACK churches.
Condemning the show displayed by ANC leadership led by their party Leader Musalia Mudavadi, who walked out minutes after the Archbishop’s announcement, she urged politicians to have humility, and accept to share platforms with everyone, even if they don’t subscribe to their ideas and opinions.
She called upon other churches to follow suit and ban politicians from using the church to propagate their political agenda, saying that it was high time the pulpit be respected.
The Governor spoke this in Butere, Kakamega County, after she attended the consecration and enthronement ceremony of Rose Okeno, the first ACK woman Bishop, as the fourth Bishop of Butere Diocese.
She thanked Butere diocese for showing confidence in Women’s leadership, by electing a woman as their Bishop.
She termed her election to office as another win for the girl child and urged women to present themselves whenever elective positions are available, for women exude exemplary leadership.
Governor Ngilu was in the company of Kitui Diocese Bishop Muneeni Nzoka and kitui Mothers Union, of which she is a member.
