Former technical assistant to President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mutahi Ngunyi has stated that State House should not weaponise the church.
In his statemnent, Ngunyi noted God is full of surprises but not a trusted political weapon. He further added that God is independent.
“State House should not weaponize the church. And if they do so, they will attract God. He will send upon them prophets and poets of truth. Then Ruto will have to behead the prophets and castrate the poets. God is independent. He is not a trusted political weapon. He has surprises,” Ngunyi said.
Moreover, Ngunyi’s remarks cam afterPresident William Ruto hosted church leaders at State House Nairobi for a thanksgiving service, on Sunday, September 25.
Nontheless, the move raised questions from a section of Kenyans, some of whom feel that it was wrong for the head of state to do so.
However, a section has also defended the President’s move to have church leaders at his official residence.
Furthermore, during the service, President Ruto asked the clergy to pray for the country and the economic recovery journey the Kenya Kwanza administration is taking.
He further invited them for cleansing prayers at State House.
