AN archbishop has anointed Juja MP William Kabogo as Kiambu governor. African Independent Pentecostal Church of East Africa Archbishop Evanson Ndung'u also anointed businessman Kimani Wamatangi as senator.
The two were anointed when they attended a church service at AIPCEA church in Githunguri district last Sunday. "I would urge the congregation to vote for Kabogo to safeguard our church property and resources of Kiambu county," Ndung'u said.
The clergy asked Kenyans to uphold peace during the electioneering period. He urged politicians to stop abusing each other in public rallies and instead preach peace.
"I am asking the politicians to attend church services and ask for votes but in a systematic manner," he said. Ndung' u told Kenyans to shun politicians who are out to incite them to avoid the recurrence of the violence witnessed in 2007.
Kabogo reiterated that he is not involved in drug trade and told his rivals to keep off his affairs. He said he deserves to be the Kiambu governor because he has managed his constituency well.
The MP urged Kenyans who want to go and work in Saudi Arabia to use proper channels to get there. "I am not in drugs as my rivals claim. They are framing me because they know that I am not selfish," Kabogo said.
Others who were anointed by Ndung'u were former Kiambu County Council Chairman McDonald Goko who is vying for Githunguri MP Seat, and County representative George Mwaura.
Meanwhile, Ndungu urged AIPCEA faithfully to maintain peace and stop fighting. He at the same time asked the National Council of Churches of Kenya to return a section of schools belonging to the Church.
