"Your Zips Are Down," A Governor Tells Off Critics Whom Turn Church Events Into Political Rallies

Great rivalry has been witnessed between the Nakuru Governor Dr. Lee Kinyanjui and Senator Kahika Susan at a church function whereby Deputy President William Samoei Ruto was in attendance.

Governor Kinyanjui said that someone has to correct politicians, whom have turned church functions into publicity rallies, whereby he added on telling them that their zips were down.

Elsewhere outside the church, people shouted Susan Kihika for governor slogans, whereby they disturbed the church service at the Langa Langa Full Gospel Church.

Afterwards Ruto was in Nakuru for the consecration ceremony of FGCK presiding Bishop Macharia David. He was accompanied by MPs allied to the UDA political party, including the Nakuru Town East legislator David Gikaria, and his Subukia counterpart Samuel Gachobe.

Lee Kinyanjui was further angered by the Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa’s statement, that besides praying for the Deputy President’s success to take the presidency in 2022, she was even praying for Susan Kihika to win the Nakuru’s gubernatorial seat.

Governor Kinyanjui furher asked himself, how a leader could pay persons to cheer and make lots of noise at a church function attended by national leaders and international visitors. He gave apologies to the church on behalf of his fellow politicians whom don't distinguish between political meetings and church organised functions.

“What a bad image of us will the international visitors present take home? I now tell the leaders whom turn churches into political rallies, that their zip is down,” says Governor Lee Kinyanjui.

Kinyanjui further said that, he too had the resources and manpower required to bring a crowd of people to cheer him, but he much respected the church.
