They Even Returned Less Money; Finally Simba Arati Hits Back Catholic Revealing Amount He Gave

According to the sources after a ruckus at Nyamwagwa Catholic Parish, the Catholic Diocese of Kisii returned Sh100,000 donated by Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati. He claimed his opponents were using the church to discredit him, according to the Nation.

"I gave out money to several leaders in the church. Why then are they claiming to have returned part of the money? Why are they not returning the rest, which amounts to more than Sh300,000?" posed Arati. Arati claimed that there was shouting in the church between supporters of different politicians, and after the noise persisted, he stepped out following a request by one of the priests.


 According to a source within the church, the leadership threatened to return the money as a warning to other politicians who like to politic from the pulpit. It's regrettable that certain politicians donate to the church in order to have access to an audience right inside the church. We ought to handle Christian and church concerns with caution and sobriety.

"What happened on Sunday is very unfortunate. I respect the church and I strongly believe in God. At the end of it all, I have no bishop or father who is my godfather, but I have God. I don't want a fight with the church."

Meanwhile, the MPs Nyaribari Masaba, Ezekiel Machogu, Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Masaba), and Joseph Majimbo Kalasinga (Kabuchai), among others who were present, were not given the opportunity to address the crowd. Arati was compelled to leave the church. Outside the church, he addressed his supporters.
