Twitter Argument: Sakaja Responds To Ahmednassir Over The Discussion Surrounding Church Closure

After claiming that Ahmednassir Abdullahi was breaking the law by not enforcing the legislation on noise pollution against churches, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja took a shot at the attorney.

In response to Sakaja's earlier statement that he wouldn't be closing churches like he did bars, the senior counsel tweeted, "If we observe the law we will not disagree. Law enforcement and compliance with it are not optional. No one has the authority to disobey, ignore, or override the law, so when my governor, @ SakajaJohnson, says he won't prosecute churches for noise pollution, he is breaking the law.Some Kenyans claim the county chief is biased in his decision, raising the question of whether the county leader will shut down churches like he has done with bars.

On Sunday of last week, Sakaja gave a last warning and then signaled police to pursue bars that had disobeyed his orders over noise pollution in residential neighborhoods.

The first revelers to be ambushed by the police were those from club 1824, and they were made to leave their beers on the tables.

Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) weighed in on the decision with equal amounts of support and criticism, and the outspoken users urged the newly elected governor to target loud churches as well.Sakaja asserted that it would be a wise course of action for a believer like him to open a discussion with the leaders rather than initially shutting them down.

"Let's show consideration for one another; that's how the gospel gets out, by setting a good example. Of course, I can't just go around closing churches. I'm a believer and I won't touch a house of worship, whether it's a mosque, a church, or a synagogue, That won't happen. But we are advising them to act responsibly and set an example," he said.
