Atheism (lack of faith in the existence of a supreme being) is uncommon in Kenya. According to 2020 statistics, only 0.4% of the total population in Kenya are atheists. Despite the number appearing to be very small, this group of people is registered by the government as a society.
Harrison Mumia who is the president of the Atheists In Kenya Society registered the organization on February 17, 2016. The organization has over 750,000 members.
On Sunday morning (May 2) Harrison Mumia wrote a sensitive tweet on his tweeter account confronting churches for noise pollution. This is after the ban of social gathering was lifted by the president on labour day (May 1) He tweeted:
" Cant some churches just worship quietly? Does your God need loud speakers to notice you are praising him? Mnatupigia kelele na hizi makanisa zenu nkt! This is a major downside of the lockdown opening."
His tweet ignited mixed reactions from tweeps. Here are some:
@Karanja Charles: But you never say the same concerning all those pubs right inside the same estates.
@Felix Kiprotich: NEMA shoul really do a thing about noise pollution by churches or they should relocate further from estates. Sucks when you try to relax on your only day off but you can't enjoy because of them.
Feel free to share your opinion on the issue addressed by Harrison Mumia on the comment section. Do you think Harrison is making some sense? Let's go.
