Catholic Priest Calls for Closure of Churches in Kenya Which are Noisy

A Renowned catholic Father by the name Charles Kinyua is now calling the government to shutdown some noisy churches, which have contributed to an increase in noise pollution in towns and residential areas.

Father Charles Kinyua, who was speaking to his online congregation during the first Sunday of advent, blamed some churches for noise pollution.

The intruder was incensed that the pastor and his flock were about to start making noise, disturbing the peace on an otherwise serene morning when he needed to rest after a whole week of hustle and bustle.

“We have noted an increased number of small churches that are generating noise pollution during the fellowship. We have convened a meeting with religious leaders to discuss and find a sustainable solution to this noise menace,” he said.

Loud preaching and music are normal practices in churches, some competing for new followers. It was first started by gospel churches before conservative churches like the Quakers, Catholics, Presbyterians, Adventists, and Anglicans joined the trend, popular among youthful worships.

Church sessions are livened with musical instruments like tambourines, pianos guitars, cymbals, violins, and trumpets. The crescendo is when preaching and songs are amplified through powerful speakers.

Father Kinyua who is the Managing Director of Radio Waumini made the remarks at a time when Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has enforced a directive to revoke the licenses of all nightclubs within Nairobi estates.

“Our country is full of noise. The other day there is a gentleman in this country, a lawyer and sometimes politician from this Nairobi county. He made a statement which I actually supported 100 percent.

I could see how the hypocrites were castigating him… no you are thinking like a pagan, atheist… but the guy had a point. Today, churches are noisier than pubs, that is the truth. Our churches have more noise than drinking pubs. That tells you we have a problem,” he said.
