Two bishops clashed at a funeral over sacrament in a funeral attended by former Kiambu Governor, William Kabogo.
The priest leading the service of the Former MCA of Gatuanyaga ward, Hellen Wamaitha Meangi's sister, Hellen Wanjiru was offended by Kiambu County Speaker, Bishop Stephen Ndichu, who chairs the Kenya National Congress of Pentecostal Churches and Ministries asked the Catholic Church to amend its sacrament doctrine.
Ndichu coerce the priest into subscribing to his wish by pledging to reward the clergyman's brother with a job at the County Government.
Ndichu, the protestant deacon, lamented that the Catholic church had barred non-members from taking the sacrament at a holy mass, which he found offensive. He claimed that the sacrament represented the body of Jesus Christ which should be given to all despite their religious affiliations.
Iritated mourners turned against Ndichu and threatened to interrupt the event forcing the Catholic bishop to intervene, chasing Ndichu from the podium and from the event. "Get out and go and do what you will do," he dared Ndichu. With everyone against him, the humiliated Ndichu left the funeral prematurely.
