The Anglican Church in Kenya has banned politicians from taking political campaigns to its places of worship.
The church, through its leader Archbishop Eliud Wabukala, said the church will not receive gifts from politicians or allow the pulpit to be used to spur animosity among Kenyans.
"We must embrace humility and become wiser as the country nears the General Elections. We will not allow the church pulpits be used by politicians to attack each other," said Archbishop Wabukala on Sunday after leading a Sunday worship session at the All Saints Cathedral Church in Nairobi.
"As a church, we will remain non-partisan, but politicians who want to divide Kenyans on tribal lines should be discouraged at all costs. We are aware that some of them may not mean well," said Wabukala.
