Bishop explains why clergymen can’t stop collecting money from politicians

An Anglican bishop, Timothy Gichere of the ACK Mt Kenya Central diocese disclosed on Sunday that he and other clergy men won’t stop collecting money from politicians until court convicts them of corruption.

According to the Bishop, clergy men can’t decline when politicians offer money in church because they aren’t in any position to know the source of the money.

When leaders come to church and contribute money with clean hearts, we can’t decline because we are not in a position to know if the money is gotten from corruption and we are not there to rebuke and label people as corrupt because that is the obligation of the courts,” he said on Sunday.

Bishop Timothy Gichere added that he was categorical that the church was fully behind the war on graft.

He added:

It is unfair for politicians to be using the church as a campaign platform and to spread hate.
