Kenyan televangelist, Pastor Muiru wants to be president.
Posted by African Press International on January 28, 2007
Power they say is sweet! “In Kenya, election fever has grabbed everyone from the professional politicians to men and women of the cloth. It is rapidly beginning to look as though talk in 2006 of a theocratic nation was more than just a pipe dream.”
The media has reported that, “already one televangelist, Pastor Pius Muiru, is gunning for the presidency, while another charismatic church leader, Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, has her eyes set slightly lower, as she just wants to be an ordinary Member of Parliament.”
As dirty as it is said to be, politics can attract people from all works of life, even the holy. “These putative politicians are going to learn very fast that once they are no longer behind the pulpit, mud will be thrown at them and some will inevitably stick. Politics is not called a dirty game for nothing.”
Many have said Jesus was also a politician of some kind. He held public meetings wherever he met many people and he spoke to them about many things that touched on their lives.
