The Church Council explain that they received orders from the county authorities to place only 10 chairs for Ruto during his visit in Kakamega.
Shitsimi said they had planned to put up the tents and a makeshift pulpit to accommodate the DP and his team.
“Things, seemingly, won’t go as planned,” he said.
The church’s high priest, Shem Shamala, met a couple of uniformed police officers on Friday to seek clarification on the said-orders.
“The meeting is an invite-only affair, and we’re aware of the Covid-19 protocols, which we’ve vowed to abide by,” said Shamala, wondering why “new orders were being issued to change the face of the event”.
