The African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa (AIPCA) Laikipia East diocese has banned area woman representative, Catherine Waruguru from its prayer houses after she allegedly disrupted a church service on Sunday.
Bishop Daniel Ndirangu accused the Woman Rep of storming his Nanyuki church with a group of drunk youths in an attempt to shut down nominated MP Maina Kamanda, who was in attendance.
The bishop termed the act callous and urged politicians across the country to respect the church.
“It was very disheartening to see our woman representative who was also visibly drunk lead a group of approximately drunk 200 youth to storm a church service just because she supports one side of the political divide in the country. She should seek forgiveness from God,” Bishop Ndirangu said today at Thingithu AIPCA church.
The Bishop commended police officers for restoring order after Waruguru and her supporters began chanting political slogans in the church service.
“We thank the police for their promptness in arresting the situation that would have turned ugly before the house of the Lord.
They managed to eject the hecklers from the church within a very short time to allow for the service to continue,” the Bishop said.
Shortly after being evicted, Waruguru addressed her supporters at Thingithu grounds where she castigated Kamanda.
The incident come at the backdrop of another church drama that was reported at Gitui Catholic church in Murang’a County on September 8.
On the said date, MPs Kamanda and his Kiharu counterpart Ndindi Nyoro clashed during a fundraiser after they disagreed on who was to invite a list of their colleagues who had attended the function.
The disagreement resulted to a push and pull that brought activities at the church to a stand still.
Bishop James Maria Wainaina, of the Catholic Diocese of Murang’a, ordered all clergies to cancel all events that politicians were invited.
