Bishop invokes curse on Governor’s critics

A bishop has invoked God’s curses on what he termed as agents of doom bent on derailing development in Kwale County under the leadership of re-elected Governor Mr. Salim Mvurya.

Bishop Morris Mwarandu, head of the Lord’s Gathering Centre, an affiliate of the Redeemed Gospel Church, was speaking before praying at the Governor’s swearing in ceremony at the Kwale Baraza Park.

He excited the crowd which cheered him as he decreed a string of curses on politicians whom he described as perpetual fault finders.

The man of cloth decried confrontational politics and asked politicians to focus on issues and tone down on political rhetoric and mudslinging now that elections were over.

The cleric told the leaders to put aside their political party affiliations and forge a bipartisan working method to spur socio-economic development in the county.

Now that elections are over, you must unite and embark on service delivery to the people and may God’s wrath be upon any of you who will deviate from this, he told the leaders.

Mwarandu lauded Mr. Mvurya’s commitment to development and called on other elected leaders to support and work with him to better the lives of locals in his second term.

He also did not spare the Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) saying that this time round, they should conduct themselves responsibly and cooperate with the Governor.

The forces that may attempt to undermine Mr. Mvurya’s determination to bring real change in the lives of our people, I declare the curse of God upon them, said Mwarandu as the crowd shouted in agreement.

At one time during his first term Mr. Mvurya who clinched a resounding win in the gubernatorial race on a Jubilee ticket after ditching ODM, survived an impeachment by MCAs over the control of ward bursary funds.

Mr. Mvurya’s sterling performance as pioneer governor is said by observers to have played a major role in his re-election in what is regarded as an opposition zone and his supporters are averse to anybody out to wreck his development agenda this time round.
