Monday, January 31, 2022 – Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife, Ida Odinga, has asked the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) to abolish some churches that are not run by trained theologians.

Speaking yesterday during the launch of the Christian Book by Archbishop Emeritus Habbakuk Abogno, Ida urged NCCK to regulate the establishment of churches and shut down those that fail to meet the required standards.

She noted that many small churches had cropped up in the past few years, adding that they were not effective because their leaders had not been trained.

Ida stated that some church leaders were just reading scriptures as they are written in the Bible instead of interpreting it for their congregants.

According to Ida, who is seeking to be the 5th First Lady should her husband win in the August presidential contest, some Christian institutions have been set up to make money while using God’s name instead of bringing people closer to God.

“We want Kenyans to subscribe to religions that are formally registered and not those whose belief systems are commodified. 

“It is also important that we conduct training for all those who minister the word of God,” Ida remarked.

In 2016, President Uhuru directed the Attorney General to consult with religious leaders, noting that rogue preachers were exploiting Kenyans. 

In 2019, Kangema MP Muturi Kigano tabled a proposal at the National Assembly aimed at weeding out rogue pastors and churches but was met with a lot of resistance by religious leaders.
