An Anglican bishop Timothy Gichere of the ACK Mt Kenya Central diocese on Sunday, April 21, stated that they will continue collecting money from politicians till the court finds them guilty of corruption. Baring his mind on the question of churches receiving cash donations from political leaders, he took a swipe at leaders who were at the forefront condemning churches for accepting ‘gifts’ from politicians.
The Anglican Bishop who insisted they would continue to accept money from the leaders until the court find them guilty of corruption, added that it is hard for the church to distinguish “clean money” from that which was acquired through unscrupulous means. Bishop Timothy Gichere further said that no one should judge another leader for their generosity, but instead let the courts determine whether or not they are corrupt.
“When leaders come to church and contribute money with clean hearts, we can’t decline because we are not in a position to know if the money is gotten from corruption and we are not there to rebuke and label people as corrupt because that is the obligation of the courts,” he said on Sunday.
