|TV Pastor Tears Uhuru Apart Over Ruai Evictions [VIDEO] by Kenyans247(1): Mon 18, May, 2020 10:02pm|
Pastor Godfrey Migwi of the House of Hope church went viral on Sunday, May 17 as he shed tears while tearing into President Uhuru Kenyatta over demolitions undertaken in Ruai and Kariobangi North, Nairobi.
The pastor heavily criticised the president, accusing him of being heartless and caring little about the needs of the poor.
He accused Uhuru of being selfish and ignoring the needs of Kenyans due to his privileged background as the son of the country's first president.
Migwi wondered how he could allow families, many of whom supported his election bid in 2017, to be kicked out into the cold during a global pandemic.
He disclosed that in Ruai, some of those evicted had worked hard over many years to build permanent houses, questioning how they got construction approvals from the same government.
Migwi demanded that the president halt the evictions immediately, claiming that room was being made for the construction of a city project backed by powerful individuals.
"I have felt this pain and I need to share it with you. I have a lot of pain. I respect Uhuru Kenyatta as a president, but while people are telling me to support the president, the Bible says everything must be done with wisdom.
"If the president tells us to kill someone, will we do it because he is the president? If he makes a mistake, he must be told.
"People are having their homes destroyed in Ruai. Old women, their homes are being demolished while president Uhuru Kenyatta is at State House, on conference calls and on Zoom.
"No one with a bit of humanity can evict someone right now. Even I have a few rental houses but I cannot evict anyone right now," he stated.
Migwi maintained that he was not out for publicity or money, wondering why Uhuru could abandon those who supported him in his bid for the presidency.
He weaved in Bible stories on death and injustice, stating that he was not a normal preacher and cared about the rights of regular people.
Migwi claimed that other pastors and churches in Nairobi were receiving handouts to stay silent on the controversial actions taken by the national government.
"Right now, I am supposed to go to preach. Who am I going to preach to? My congregation are the people whose houses you have demolished, my congregation is the poor.
"People tell me they don't have offerings to give or food to eat. Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, you must look out for the people of Ruai," he asserted.
Migwi noted that he was ready to suffer any consequences for his words, reiterating that it was time Uhuru offered a helping hand to the poor instead of making their lives more difficult.
"If we have to go out to the streets to protest and die, let's die. Let us join hands with lawmakers and other citizens, I am ready," he stated, demanding action.
The evictions in Ruai and Kariobangi North that left thousands homeless are part of a plan by the government to reclaim public land meant for sewerage services.
They have stirred anger including in Parliament where legislators questioned the timing of the evictions with the country battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
