A Murang’a bishop has told politicians involved in a Sunday church fracas to publicly apologise.
Bishop James Wainaina in a press statement on Monday said a time has come for politicians to be limited from church activities.
He said the limitation going forward will be extended to all the dioceses which include Kirinyaga where the scuffle ensued.
He said politicians have for years taken christian gatherings conveniently as platforms for self-interests and self-proposition in elective posts.
“I feel that this incident was a strong confirmation of the reasons to limit time and space offered to politicians,” he said.
He said the incident further confirms why christian gatherings must always remain in the hands of a bishop or priest.
“This has put us on guard that an incident which may look innocent at the beginning can become uncontrollably ugly and embarrassing if the wrong people take over control of such gatherings,” he said.
Wainaina maintained a church is a house of prayer and must be respected by all.
He said Sunday’s incident is regrettable, unfortunate, uncalled for and above all shameful.
