Anglican church archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has come out to defend his earlier remarks on sunday during a service at Butere girls secondary school where he banned politicians from taking over the pulpit with politics during sermons.
While speaking on citizen tv Monday report show,the strict man of God says that he never banned anyone from coming to the church when they feel like.
He clarifies his sentiments saying that he only meant the church would not allow politicking in the house of God as people go to church to hear the word and go home with the message and not politics.
"I did not ban anybody from coming to church. What I said is that we will not allow politicking in the church.People come to church to hear the word of God and that is the message they should go home with, not the political message,"he said.
This comes after he refused prominent leaders in his church among them the former prime minister Raila Odinga and ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi from campaigning in the church yesterday.
