Khalwale banished from church

22 September 2016, 12:53 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Religious leaders in Vihiga County have threatened to bar Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale from addressing gatherings arranged by the church.

The leaders said Khalwale should apologise for remarks made while at Kapsotik primary school where he said Vihiga people had been doomed to have trusted a ‘preacher’ to be their Governor.

“We cannot trust someone who only knows how to count church offerings with County leadership,” Khalwale had said.

Governor Moses Akaranga is fondly referred to as Reverend due to the many years he served as general administrator at Pentecostal Assemblies of God headquarters in Nyang’ori.

Religious leaders however noted the statement was defamatory and demeaning to them as they play an integral role in development of society.

“Church leaders are not just found in leadership by chance, they merit. Servants of God are anointed and have a higher calling,” said Francis Ludeki, secretary of Evangelical Alliance of Kenya, Vihiga chapter.

While noting Khalwale doesn’t represent any interests of the people of Vihiga, Ludeki asked him to apologise to the church, saying no one has ever waged war against the church and succeeded.

“We demand an apology or he will not be allowed to address any gathering chaired by religious leaders anywhere,” said Ludeki.

He further observed that Khalwale has been in constant war with whomever he finds in the region, despite him not being the Luhya spokesperson.

Khalwale had further said senators from western region will wage war against incumbent governors in the next elections so they can pave way for development oriented governors.
