Mutua wants church leaders to interrogate suspect offerings from particular leaders

Machakos governor has added fuel to the fire consuming Deputy President William Ruto involving his generous proceeds to churches. Mutua has challenged clerics to reject the ‘dirty money’.

Addressing thousands of faithful at Africa Inland Church (AIC) Kasarani in Nairobi, Mutua said religious leaders have an obligation to question the source of any money offered in churches, saying God cannot accept a dirty offering.

Mutua, who was hosted by the AIC presiding bishop, Silas Yego said church leaders should interrogate suspect offerings brought in churches, particularly by political leaders.

“It is not right for bishops and reverends to say they will not question the sources of money brought as offerings to churches. God does not need corruption money to get his work done,” said Dr Mutua who is also the Machakos governor.

The governor who championed for the plight of the majority of poor Kenyans warned that the country’s economy was being destroyed by rampant corruption and challenged Christians to rise up against the vice.

“As a church, we should reject dirty money, it doesn’t matter. If (governor) Mutua bring in church money that you suspect is proceed of corruption, you should question its source,” he said.
