ODM leader Raila Odinga’s Azimio La Umoja National Convention held at Kasarani Stadium has generated lots of buzz on social media.
The much-hyped event attracted the attention of many Kenyans with hundreds of thousands of people following the event live on TV.
However, one incident that has caused a heated debate on social media is a prayer made by Sheikh Juma Ngao.
In what appeared as a direct swipe at Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA party, Sheikh Ngao labelled the outfit as a corrupt alliance and asked God to keep them off from power.
“Tunakuomba Allah, wale wafuasi wa cha chama cha Ufisadi Daima Alliance, usiwape uongozi… Hao ni wafisadi, hao ni wauaji, wanachoma mpaka makanisa. Kuwapa uongozi ni kuiangazia Kenya,” Ngao prayed.
The prayer has caused massive debate on social media with allies of DP Ruto castigating him for politicising prayers.
Mohamed Dida: Shame on the Sheikh leading prayer in Azimio Convention. His reference to UDA as Ufisadi Daima Alliance has stripped the Azimio and Raila Odinga of all legitimacy, dignity & reverence. Such prayers are unIslamic, ungodly & tantamount to hate speech. God answer not hate prayers
Joseph Muhusa: The prayers by the Muslim servant of God calling the competitors of Raila as Ufisadi Daima Alliance is ridiculously misusing God’s word, Allah’s
Gabriel Oguda: William Ruto has been calling Luos vile names in all his political rallies but when Sheikh Juma Ngao asks God to save us from those burning people in churches you suddenly want to pretend that you care for foul language? Pretenders are worse than murderers
Mumbi was Mbui: The Muslim “profit” has prayed against the evil Ufisadi Daima Alliance (UDA) from taking over leadership. Walai may Allah reject those prayers
