The African Independent Pentecostal church of Africa AIPCA in Nakuru has welcomed the presidential directive to have maize farmers paid and action taken against those who were paid irregularly.
Addressing media in Nakuru on Wednesday, Bishop Naftaly Thuku of AIPCA Nakuru North Diocese said the directive will come as a relief for farmers who have waited for a long time.
Bishop Thuku who was meeting AIPCA deacons at AIPCA Bishop Mureithi cathedral in Nakuru town said that farmers have for a long time toiled to have good harvest and as such the government must ensure they get good pay.
“Farmers have for a long time toiled to have good harvest and as such the government must ensure they get good pay” he said.
This comes even as Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri said that he had tabled all available evidence and payments made to maize farmers.
On the other hand the bishop said that AIPCA church is fully behind the fight on corruption.
He said corruption had led the nation almost to its knees and this trend cannot be entertained.
He also welcomed calls for referendum so long as it’s to benefit Wanjiku.
Bishop Thuku said that changing the Constitution to benefit and individual or two will not help the common mwananchi in any way.
