Friday March 15, 2019-Three Members of Parliament on Thursday castigated the media for what they said were unwarranted attacks on the church and dismissed suggestions that all preachers must hold a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree.
Addressing the press at Parliament Buildings yesterday, the trio, Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino, together with Igembe South MP, John Paul Mwirigi, and Nominated MP, Gideon Keter, said they will not sit and watch as the church is being attacked.
“Some people want to ground the church, those who are saying pastors should have a degree are wrong,” said Mr. Keter.
“Some opinions should be kept to oneself,” he stated.
His sentiments were echoed by Babu Owino who revealed that he is a follower of Prophet Owuor, adding that the media erred by attacking him and the church.
“We will pray and forgive those fighting the church,” he said. “Mimi ni mtoto wa misa and I encourage Prophet Owuor to continue serving the flock,” said the controversial legislator.
Prophet Owuor, who has a cult-like following, is currently in the middle of a police probe in a suspected fraud case involving properties worth 1.5 billion of shillings.
