Pastor cuts short Oscar Sudi’s address over politics in Eldoret

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi cut short his address during a funeral program in Kesses Constituency after a priest threatened to eject him for engaging in politics, apologizing before exiting the podium.

“We unaingia siasa, were maliza, hii ni siasa,” ( You are getting political now, just conclude because this is politics),” the priest ordered.

“Hapa ni kanisa, sio siasa, tuonyeshe vile unajua mambo ya kiroho, sio siasa,” the priest added ( We are in a spiritual setting, tell us how much you know in this topic without getting political)

Sudi pleaded with the man of the cloth, stating that he had demonstrated to him how much of a religious person he was in several instances but still exited the podium.

Sudi had earlier engaged in the discussion involving the contentious Finance Bill 2024, in which several regions of the country witnessed protests over some of the clauses in the bill.

The vocal legislator chided the protesting youth, saying they were ignorant of the law-making process.

Sudi also noted that some of the protesting youth had a lot to gain from the same bill they were protesting against, in terms of more education loans and the creation of local jobs.
