Outspoken Bishop Godfrey Migwi has blasted President Uhuru Kenyatta over the treatment of Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro.

In a lengthy sermon, the pastor blamed the President for the rift being witnessed in the central region.

Bishop Migwi said: "I will repeat without apology that President Uhuru Kenyatta is the cause of the political turmoil in central Kenya."

Pointing out President's flaws

The pastor accused Uhuru of forcing Mt Kenya region to abandon Deputy President Wiliam Ruto and forcing MPs who support his deputy to jump ship.

He further criticized the President for his treatment of Mr Nyoro pointing out that he had previously declined to help the Kiharu MP build a classroom in the constituency.

"Hon. Ndindi asked Uhuru politely to help build a class or donate a bus to a certain school, Uhuru responded arrogantly that Ndindi should use CDF," he said.

The Bishop pointed out that Nominated MP Maina Kamanda was given a Ksh1 Million donation by President Kenyatta to the church even after calls by leaders to stop funding churches.

Double standards

He said that this was a double standard on the part of the Head of State whose allies have been condemning Dr Ruto for the contributions he has been giving churches.

"They staged a church Harambee in Kiharu and Uhuru sent 1M with Kamanda and a troop of other MPs who have been undermining DP Ruto and Ndindi in central Kenya," Pastor Migwi said.

His remarks come in the backdrop of chaos that erupted in a church in Murang'a where Mr Nyoro clashed with Mr Kamanda who had been invited to a fundraiser.

Murang'a Catholic Bishop James Maria Wainaina announced that he has initiated investigations into the chaos that rocked Gitui Catholic and banned church harambees in the diocese.
