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 on Sunday, January 30, during the launch of the Christian Book by Archbishop Emeritus Habbakuk Abogno, Mrs Ida said 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.
She stated that some church leaders were just reading scriptures as they are written in the Bible instead of interpreting it for their congregants.
She has since apologised after escalated uproar from Christian faithful across the country.
