Internet Erupts as Police Officers Invade a Church and Stop Live Service To Implement Uhuru Orders


It is obviously known that everyone is entitled to the freedom of worship but the emergence of the covid-19 pandemic led to the disruption of worship in Kenya. During the 15th. national Presidential address on Covid-19 pandemic, President Uhuru suspended all physical, in person and congregational worship in all places of worship in the counties of Nairobi, Kajiado, Machakos, Kiambu and Nakuru. This has been a major blow to religious leaders in those areas as believers have been forced to adapt to online services as others pray in their homes.


The internet has erupted as a video surfaced online in which police officers were caught on camera as they invaded a church to stop a live service that was going on. This happened in Rongai as Police officers said that they were there to implement President Uhuru's orders on suspension of congregational worship in Nairobi. The were many Police officers who were present and the main pastor was so angry by the incident in which the officers chased them outside of the church and what happened there afterwards is not known but Kenyans on social media are not happy with what happened because the Police were so harsh and rude to the pastors.


Netizens expressed different views towards the incident. A section of Kenyans argued that the devil has attacked the church to prevent people from praising God. Some Kenyans were not satisfied with the act of the Police Officers confronting the pastor from the alter. They should respect the church as the house of God and that the alter is a holy ground.
