I was an ‘E’ student, Sonko tells Kidero

Mr Sonko said he was so poor in accounting and mathematics that he could not audit the county government’s finances.

“Contrary to your views that I am using the Auditor General’s report to settle political scores, please note that I did not order for any audit report nor did I participate in the investigations.

“My academic credentials, especially in mathematics and accounts cannot allow me to come up with such a comprehensive report. I got a constant ‘E’ in my KCSE mathematics exam,” he said.

He was responding to a scathing attack from Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero who had accused him of sabotaging the county government’s development agenda.

Sustained witch-hunt

Dr Kidero had accused Mr Sonko of engaging in a sustained witch-hunt campaign, instead of joining forces with other leaders to develop the county.

“The county government believes you should be part of the solution and not a cynical critic and saboteur of its well-meant efforts,” said the Governor.

“We are concerned that Sonko, as Senator for Nairobi, continues using incitement and postures meant to intimidate, embarrass and frustrate service delivery,” he added.

But in a rejoinder, Sonko maintained that his role entailed providing oversight over County Hall.

“Charged with the role of oversight, I cannot sit back and watch as millions of taxpayers’ money goes to individual’s pockets. It is the high time you took responsibility and tell Nairobians who pocketed the money, how you plan to recover it, disciplinary measures taken and plans to seal loopholes to avoid recurrence,” he said.

Former PCEA Moderator David Githii Defrocked over Claims of Devil Worship and Homosexuality

david-githii

The Presbyterian Church of East Africa on Thursday defrocked a former moderator after he claimed the church was riddled with devil worship and homosexuality.

A statement by the church’s decision making body, the business committee, read by moderator David Gathanju said Dr David Githii would no longer be referred to as reverend.

Dr Githii was directed to surrender church vestments, but will remain an ordinary member.

“The Kajiado Presbytery defrocked him as per the procedure of the church. The church had already received his resignation letter and decided to let him go. We have endorsed his defrocking,” the Rev Gathanju said.

Dr Githii, however, insisted his allegations were true and that the church had resorted to defrocking clerics who dared talk about the vices.

“What I said is true. Devil worship has been practised in the church since the 1990s while homosexuality has been rife since 2001,” he said.

Several clerics in the church were aware of the problems but dared not say anything, Dr Githii claimed.

 

NEVER MADE ALLEGATIONS IN ANY COMMITTEE

The Rev Gathanju, however, maintained neither devil worship nor homosexuality were practised at the church and that anyone found engaging in the practices would be expelled.

He said Dr Githii had never made his allegations in any committee or court of the church.

“We are aware that Dr Githii made several assertions in regard to what he termed ‘satanic symbols’ in our church and even government institutions. These are his personal opinions that the church found to have no biblical or theological basis.”

When Dr Githii succeeded the Rev Dr Jesse Kamau as PCEA moderator in 2003, he changed the method of worship to become “more agreeable to the modern Christian community”.

He also linked some symbols in the church to Freemasonry and devil worship, leading to their destruction at St Andrews Church, Nairobi, in 2004.

A row over Freemasonry split the PCEA, leading to the removal of priceless historical artefacts from its prayer houses.
