Bishop Jane Gathoni
The Bishop of Kirima Tent of Prayer, Jane Gathoni, claims that homosexual bars have been operating at Kirigiti town in Kiambu County, where unemployed youths are lured in with the promise of Ksh.30K a month.
The bishop condemned the decision to allow same-sex marriages, regretted that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community(LGBTQ) from the western countries have been sponsoring recruitment exercises, a move she referred to as alien and one that could change the Kenyan youth.
“It horrifies me to know that there is a homosexual bar in Kirigiti and that the LGBTQ community from the west has been sponsoring this lifestyle by paying those recruited up to Ksh.30,000 every month. There is a great need for us to educate our youth and get them out of that trap because they have been lured into falsehood,” Jane said.
How to help
Speaking during a worship experience event at Kirima Prayer and resource Centre, the Bishop regretted that if not arrested, some of the western cultures could change the youth and stray them away from the African and spiritual values, a weird sense of belonging that most people end up in due to the high cost of living.
To cope with the Kenyan Economy, Kirima proposed the creation of a God’s fund me kitty that would account for 10% of the total revenue that the government collects and it be dedicated to the youth empowerment.
“This will protect our wealth as a country, increase our earnings and ensure that our youths remain pure and committed to other income-generating activities instead of being diverted by some weird beliefs,” she stated
Many of the youths revealed that they gather for therapy since most of them have been battling with depression, unemployment, societal pressure and general hopelessness in life.
