Former Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) cleric, Timothy Njoya, has warned churches against involving themselves in the Uhuru-Ruto political wrangles.
in a social media post on Wednesday night, Njoya warned the church leaders from inviting the two political rivals to the pulpit.
“We are coaching disaster attending the prayers, hooliganisms, warlike and sacrilegious rallies convened by Ruto and now by Raila as battlefields,” Njoya said.
“Churches should refrain from inviting religious Talibanism to Kenya. Churches are for correcting politics, not Ruto-Raila battlefields!” Njoya added.

Since taking the oath of office on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, President William Ruto signaled that his leadership would be a strong Christian one.
The head of state has transversed the country, holding thanksgiving and prayer services in various churches in different counties.
And now, Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party leader Raila Odinga appears to have followed suit if his recent presence in churches ahead of his opposition rallies is anything to go by.
On Sunday, February 12, Raila attended a Sunday mass in Busia before holding a public rally in the border town.
On Wednesday, February 15, Raila said the coalition will stage national prayers outside the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) offices as a continuation of opposition rallies.
He said the prayers will seek to give Kenya an electoral commission that “will defend the rights of the people”.
The first round of prayers will take place next week after the planned rallies in Kisii and Kisumu on Friday and Saturday respectively.
