Bishop humiliated in Church

01 March 2012, 11:08 John Ambuli

Suspended South Rift Bishop Edwin Koech was on Saturday humiliated by his boss Presiding Bishop Silas Yego when he attempted to oppose him during church leaders meeting in Litein.

The head of the church had finished his two hours sermon when Edwin who was seated in front rose up and demanded to be given a chance to speak.

Silas dismissed him but the adamant suspended Bishop refused to leave the pulpit thus forcing police officers to intervene and forced Edwin to sit.

The presiding Bishop told the over 1000 church leaders that there was need for reforms in the church. He argued that this will go along way in making sure that church leaders set good examples rather than being dictators.

"Let me tell you Edwin that you will not speak in my meeting. This is pure church function and we dont have time to address your personal problem." Silas told Edwin before police officers forced him to sit down.

Bishop Koech was suspended after alleged sex scandal with a former Litein deputy head teacher where he denied the allegation but the teacher is still demanding for justice.

Koech was trying to protest Silas for mentioning that Reverend Paul Kirui was acting Bishop of South Rift until elections is done.

"We are not at war with anybody and if people are fed up in church affairs let them resign. It was shameful that people spread propaganda that we were coming to ordain a new Bishop for South Rift." Silas said in reference to Edwin protest.

Silas went a head to challenge all the church leaders in South Rift to protect their integrity and remain true servants of God.

Those in attendance includes former Kenya National Union of Teachers Chairman Joseph Chirchir and several church leaders majority supporting Yego.

After Silas denied Edwin a chance he was brave enough to accompany Silas in touring Litein Mission hospital and the newly established nursing training school.

The hospital is in the centre of controversy as a new board was expected to be in place but earlier Koech was opposed to the same terming it external interference.

It was not immediately clear what move Koech took after he was embarrassed in the church for demanding to speak.
