Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) says they will not allow leaders to talk politics in churches and funerals.

The ACK Bishops from Nyanza have once more affirmed their opposition to politics in churches and funerals in the region.

The church leaders said funeral services or church functions are not political arenas and they shall not allow leaders to talk politics on such occasions.

The clergy asked the ACK member churches in the region not to allow politicians to turn church pulpits into political grounds.

In a joint statement, the bishops told off leaders who use church donations as bait to talk politics in church saying they can as well keep their offerings.

The bishops said giving to the church as a bait for political motive is immoral and must be discouraged at all costs.

They called on politicians from the Nyanza region to respect such lines of engagements since church leaders too do not interfere with their political events.

Speaking in Nyakach after a prayer service, the church leaders pointed out that funerals should be left for mourners and grieving families, adding that it’s distasteful for leaders to turn such into political rallies.

The Bishops included Rev Dr. Joshua Owiti (Maseno East), Rev. Dr. Simon Onyango (Southern Nyanza), Rev. John Orina (Upper Southern Nyanza), Rev. Mark Godia (Maseno West), Rev. Charles Onginjo (Maseno South), Rev. Dr. Emily Onyango (Bondo), and Prof. David Kodia too of Bondo.
