A US-based Kenyan bishop has blasted some Kenyan immigrants living in the US, accusing them of tarnishing the good reputation of the community.
Bishop GG Gitahi of Kenyan American Community Church (KACC) in Marietta, Georgia castigated the group over what he described as “unacceptable behaviors.”
During his sermon last Sunday, Dr. Gitahi mentioned that the individuals carry and drink alcohol during funerals and went on to note that he wished that such people remained in Kenya to “save us the embarrassment.”
“If you are one of those people, you are an embarrassment to the larger Kenyan community in the US,” he noted.
He added: “Ni aibu kubwa mnatuletea hapa. Instead of people waiting to go and have their beer at home, wanaenda kwa funeral Homes na kutoa bia na kuanza kunywa. Halafu Director wa Funeral Home anasema Pastor, can’t your people have manners? Tabia zingine tuache. Ndiyo sababu tunajiaibisha.”
