Kalonzo Musyoka is the 10th vice president of the republic of Kenya. He's the founder and leader of wiper democratic movement which is a political party in Kenya.
Today he said something which caught the attention of the mass, he said that political leaders are not the worst sinners and that politics and church are inseparable.
This after Christian unions and organizations made a ban on all pulpit politics calling upon the clergy to step up.
Kenyans reacted to Kalonzo sentiments differently, one said, "Politicians were not banned from churches, they were banned from politicking in churches. The house of the Lord is not for money changers. Let politicians go to church to worship just like any other worshipers. They can politic at the church gate on their way home. "
"He is missing the point. The only one to speak in church is the one who is appointed and anointed by GOD to do so. Politicians are welcome in church in fact possibly more than everyone else so that we can pray for them and they can hear from GOD." replied another one through Twitter handle.
This has been a matter of controversy since some claim it's politics that's drive politicians to church since it gives them a rather organized platform to air their manifestos.
What's your view concerning politics being banned from church?
