In summary

  • The pastor’s say that the church is a holy establishment of God and should therefore not be regulated
  • They also want the government to hold each individual to his or her own account and not persecute the entire church leadership

Pastors from Nairobi have opposed the move by President William Ruto to establish a commission to regulate churches.

The pastor’s say that the church is a holy establishment of God and should therefore not be regulated.

“It was wrong for the president to establish a commission of inquiry to regulate churches. Churches should not be regulated because they are holy establishments of God,” said Pastor Peter Ocherah.

Ocherah who was one of the pastors who spoke at the joint media briefing said that it is also wrong to ask pastors to first attend theology classes before they lead.

“Some leaders were announced by God. Look at the Bible David was picked from the bush to lead the church. Paul was a fisherman before he became a disciple of Jesus,” said Ocherah.

They also want the government to hold each individual to his or her own account and not persecute the entire church leadership.

Mackenzie to carry his cross

“The Shakahola killings were unfortunate. Pastor Mackenzie should therefore carry his own cross since no Bible advocates for killing of faithfuls,” he said.

According to the pastors, the fact that there are different denominations means that everyone interprets the Bible in their own way.

“The government should pronounce themselves on which part of the spiritual matters are to be be investigated since everyone bases their teaching on how they interpret the bible. So the government should not to interfere with established prayer centres in the name of looking for cultic places.”

They said the country is economically down and mwananchi does not need any additional tax that may pain more Kenyans, urging members of parliament to be considerate with the situation currently in the country and not pass the Bill coz this might push more to rush to look for fake miracle preachers seeking relief.
