Kisii Catholic Diocese has returned Ksh 100,000 contribution to Dagoretti North Member of parliament Simba Arati who is also eyeing the Kisii gubernatorial seat.
However the law maker wondered why the church could not return Ksh 300,000 that he also topped up for other politicians.
“I gave out money to several leaders in the church .Why then are they claiming to have returned part of the money? Why are they not returning the rest which is about Ksh 300, 000,” Arati asked.
The church pointed out disrespect from the politician as the reason behind their action.
Speaking at a funeral in Kisii County yesterday, catholic bishop Joseph Mairura warned politicians to be careful while in church.
Though the Mp refuted claims that he had received the money from the church.
This comes after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Chairman Wafula Chebukati announced that politicians seeking elective posts will not be allowed to attend harambees past 9th December, 2021
