Archbishop lashes out at comedians

09 December 2013, 12:00 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - The African Divine Church Archbishop, John Chabuga has expressed his displeasure at comedians who are 'misusing' the church’s official wear during their entertainment bouts on the local television.

He said that by putting on christian vestments and portraying the church negatively, the comedians were sending a wrong signal to the general public that the members of the church are not a serious lot.

“In as much as comedians are using it jokingly, it is not going on well with the members of the public who are viewing us as a 'not so serious group'. I want to request them to stop the behaviour in the near future and stick to their agenda of entertaining people positively,” the Archbishop said.

He was addressing journalists after a pastors’ conference at the church headquarters at Boyani in Hamisi constituency, Vihiga County.

He stressed that the role of comedy in the society should not be to always mock everything in sight, but to teach what is right to the people.

“Our church is not against any comedians in the country. In fact, we are supporting talent by encouraging many of our youths to utilise their talents. But it should not go beyond the set limits,” he said.

He said that the two comedians who are fond of putting on the vestments should apologise with immediate effect because they were mocking God, even as they think that they are entertaining people.

The two comedians who were singled out by the Archbishop were Mtumishi and Mchungaji who star on the Churchill Show.

Chabuga further said that comedians should embrace the spirit of entertaining the citizens by not dwelling so much on the negatives in some communities, but by harnessing a sense of collective togetherness.

“Whereas we have been teaching the moral of collective togetherness in the church, the comedians are busy spreading the negatives of some communities which does not auger well with everybody. Not every individual would want to hear their communities being mocked,” he said.

He further asked the government to invest more in positive entertainment so that many unemployed but talented youths could benefit from it.
