The controversial pastor is ready to take legal action
As businesses continue to hurt due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, there is a popular pastor in the city who clearly wants all the smoke with the government.
According to sources close to the controversial pastor who contacted our Uhondo News reporter anonymously, he is threatening to sue the state for losing their income streams from church offerings and tithe due to the closure of all places of worship which was among the measures the government laid out in a bid to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The pastor is now insisting that he will be demanding for a huge compensation from the government.
“ I think what they did is absurd. I am going to file a heavy suit demanding compensation for the Sadaka and Fungu la Kumi we have lost over the period…,” he was heard saying.
A spot check by the Uhondo News team has revealed that some churches are still in operation despite the suspension of religious activities, public gatherings and sporting events. Church members gather and lock themselves in the churches then continue with prayers.
Last week , in what seemed to be a compromise as calls to re-open churches, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i announced that the government would facilitate pastors to move around praying with small groups while observing social distance.
Let the controversial pastor and his lawyer think this one through before making their move.
