Raila Celebrates After Churches Ruined Ruto’s State House Matrix By Banning Politicians From Places

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has celebrated a move by churches to ban politicians from places of worship, saying it is the right thing to do. Speaking yesterday, the ODM leader thanked churches for banning politics in churches saying politicians should do their campaigns outside the places of worship.

“I thank the church for standing for the truth and equality. The church should not be a place for politics,” Raila said yesterday in Kiambu County. Both Catholic, Anglican and AIPCEA have banned political speeches in the church.

However, this move spells doom for Deputy President William Ruto who always depended on the church to carry out his political campaigns.

The second in command has been using the church, especially during this time of the Covid-19 pandemic, to campaign for his 2022 presidential bid, and with the ban on politics in churches, his chances to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta may grow slim.
