In recent times, religious functions in Kenya seem to have lost their sanctity, turning into arenas for political bickering and ethnic profiling.
This trend has not gone unnoticed, with Former Mukurweini MP, Kabando Wa Kabando, being among the most vocal critics.
Kabando Wa Kabando recently slammed the Kenya Kwanza leaders for allegedly turning Christian places of worship into a platform for spreading hatred, warmongering, and ethnic profiling.
He accused the ruling party of using the pulpits to settle political scores with Former Prime Minister and Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga and his allies.
According to Kabando, some religious leaders are allowing their churches to be used for political purposes because they receive money from politicians. He has criticized the church for allowing their pulpits to be used to divide Kenyans and spread hatred.
“Religious functions are meant to bring people together, not to divide them. It is wrong to use places of worship to settle political scores or to spread hate speech.” Kabando said.
Kabando went further to say that it is only in churches where such practices happen and that no mosque, Jewish synagogue, or Hindu temple would allow such a thing to happen in their holy places of worship.
Kabando’s words are a wake-up call to all Kenyans, urging them to take action and ensure that our places of worship remain sanctuaries of peace, love, and unity.
