Gachagua, while speaking in a church in Nyahururu, Laikipia County, had requested the bishop to allow him to invite a guest, adding that the said leader would not go against the guidelines not to divulge into politics.

The Second in Command was introducing other leaders who had accompanied him and President William Ruto to the church service. While trying to sway Sapit’s decision, Gachagua explained that the leader was part of the clergy.

However, the bishop declined the request leaving Gachagua in awe before continuing with his speech.”The bishop has said no. I wanted to ask Naomi Waqo (Marsabit Woman Representative) to speak. Just come and say a few words,” Gachagua stated before explaining that Sapit had declined, “Never min. The bishop has refused. Things are not normal as usual.”

After the incident, some of the leaders led by President Ruto burst into laughter.

The decline came as Kenyans continue to oppose the Finance Bill 2024 which has led to demonstrations dubbed Occupy Parliament and Occupy Churches. A section of churches had been urged not to give an audience to politicians during today’s service.

Notably, this was part of the seven days of protests planned to ensure the government listened to the concerns raised and dropped the bill. A few Kenyans were spotted in various churches countrywide publicly opposing the bill.

Bishop Simon Peter Kamomoe, the Auxiliary Bishop of Nairobi, while speaking during a church service today asked the government to respond to the young Kenyans rather than reacting.

“We pray for our government not to react to them but to respond. Let’s not underestimate the power of the young people, if the government is wise enough it should know that is an issue to be addressed,” he added.

As the protests continue, Kenyans have urged President Ruto to listen and ease the cost of living. He has been asked to consider the millions of Kenyans who are living hand-to-mouth and can barely afford basic commodities.Fortunately, while also speaking at the same service as his deputy, Ruto noted that the government is expected to have a sit down with young Kenyans to draft a way forward.
