Eldoret Gospel Ministers Association now wants the government to allow the church to meet for prayers.
Led by their chairman Bishop Peter Simwa they said its sad that the government has allowed hotels to operate while denying churches the same.
“We are calling on the government to allow the church to meet for prayers and in seeking God’s intervention while adhering to the government’s directives,” said Bishop Simwa.
He said that they note that president Uhuru Kenyatta always called the church to pray whenever Kenya faces a challenge.
Bishop Simwa said that the church should be listed as an essential service provider since kwnya is 85 percent Christians, and they should not be denied their importance of getting spiritual nourishment.
“It is sad that the government has allowed other sectors that offer essential service to operate and as such the church which offers essential spiritual services has been denied the same,” added the Eldoret Gospel Ministers Association chairman.
They further said that the daily briefing which is usually carried out by the CS Health Mutahi Kagwe should be done twice per week to help restore how in the lives of the people.
“A church Minister should also be included in the COVID-19 briefing to pray and give hope to the Nation,”Bishop Simwa added.
