Politicians are running against time as they prepare themselves for the fourth coming general elections to be held next year. Many politicians have already declared their interests in running for various positions under different parties.
The Church in Kenya has been mostly used as campaigning grounds with most politicians using the Church platforms to sell their agendas. But after many Kenyans criticized the church leaders especially the clergy for allowing politics in churches, things are changing.
Churches have started barring politicians from its platforms across the country. Today, Kirinyaga County Women representative Hon. Purity Ngirici found herself on the wrong end while attending a church service. She was completely barred from addressing congregants and was forced to address press outside the church. She bitterly complained and asked the clergy to consider some people since some of them have also held positions in churches.
"Purity Ngirici barred from addressing congregants, forced to address press outside the church."
