  • Controversial TV pastor Godfrey Migwi launched a hard-hitting attack on President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

    Taking to his social media platforms on Sunday, February 23, the vocal pastor urged Kenyans to join him in rallying against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

    "The church and Kenyans of goodwill must unite and arise using all means against this nonsense called BBI created by Uhuru and Raila. It’s not good for the common mwananchi.

    "It is only for big fish and rich families. That’s why politicians can utter words against some communities without fear. Ethnicity is on the rise in this nation and if the government will not stop this act, Kenyans will start butchering one another in the name of BBI," he posted.

    Migwi pointed fingers at many of the initiatives launched by Uhuru's government as a failure, including the project that sees cash advanced to the elderly in the society, and also funds meant for people with disabilities.

    He insisted that he would not be silenced and would continue pointing out any vices.

    "You may silence us, assassinate us, close your company doors and your media houses for us not to get in, but one thing you need to know you cowards [sic], we live by faith not by sight.

    "Whatever we have, it’s by God's grace. Tumetoka mbali (we have come from far) and we are still going far. We expect more from heaven," Migwi stated.

    The controversial pastor further drew blood when he insisted that there was no clause anywhere that indicated that the country should be ruled by three families.

    This he stated in reference to the Kenyatta family, the Odinga family, and the Moi family, all of whom are seen as potential candidates in the 2022 polls.

    Migwi further widened his net and attacked Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and Murang'a Woman Representative Sabina Chege, for heckling MP Raphael Wanjala at the BBI rally in Narok.

    "Waiguru and Sabina Chege, remember that you owe the Agikukuyu community an apology for yesterday’s meeting in Narok. If not, you will remember this post one day.

    "When you go high, we will go high. If you decide to read, we will also read. If you start talking, we will start talking, and when you move, we'll move too," he concluded.
