Over 300 pastors and more than 6 MPs from Meru on Tuesday met Deputy President William Ruto, assured him support and they vowed to ensure the church in Kenya is actively involved in the country’s politics.


The prayer gathering at the DP’s Karen home was established by the Meru Ministers Forum which is chaired by Bishop Edward Buria, a close ally of Governor Kiraitu Murungi.


Father David Kaberia, a powerful priest in Meru, who is also a close associate of Mr Kiraitu was also among the front seat ministers at the fellowship.


The pastors were accompanied by national assembly legislators Moses Kirima (Imenti Central), Mugambi Rindikiri (Buuri), John Mutunga (Tigania West), Josphat Kabeabea (Tigania East), Kubai Iringo (Igembe Central) and JohnPaul Mwirigi (Igembe South).


 

Bishop Buria, who delivered a sermon during the meeting, was foreshadowing saying the Lord will honour his word in the ‘season that is coming’.

DP Ruto highlighted the need for lasting friendships quoting a Bible verse that says "two cannot walk together unless they agree".


However, critics said there was politics involve. A pastor, who attended the meeting, insisted that they had been invited by the DP to pray for him saying there was no room for politics.


“As pastors, we also want to have a voice because we are leaders in this country. However, the deputy president was clear that he is not afraid of opposition,” Pastor Isaiah Naibocha of Tigania Pastor's fellowship said.


Buuri MP Mugambi Rindikiri said they agreed that there should be no separation between church and politics.


“We agreed that we will continue praying and going to church where those who don’t matter are. The church must be actively involved in the destiny of this country. It should not be left to the corrupt,” Mr Rindikiri said.
