The Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops has said that they have lost over 8 Bilion as tithes and offerings since the government closed churches.

While speaking at a press conference the Bishops said the government should consider men of God who are feeding on tithes and offerings.

“The Church revenue continues to dwindle due to closure of Churches, mosques, synagogues and all kinds of public gathering announced by the government. The government should consider the fact that we have families to feed and bills to pay.” They said.

The government suspended all the public gatherings in the country after the first case of coronavirus in Kenya was confirmed.

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe said that the suspension will take immediate effect as a way of preventing further spreading of the virus.

This means that Christians will have no other option but to adhere to the government’s directives.

China has also taken the same move by closing temples, mosques and churches.
