ODM party leader Raila Odinga has dismissed allegations that he does not believe in God while testifying about the events of his life that he said were due to God’s blessings..

The former prime minister described his ordeal, his political upheaval, the assassination of his friends, and the brutality he suffered while in prison.

“Who would not believe in God especially after what I went through with my family? I have witnessed the men and women we had being killed, some missing without being found and others tortured to death… It is by God’s grace that I survived it all…. I believe in God, “said Raila.

The opposition leader urged religious leaders not to allow churches to be abused by politicians.

Odinga also urged the leaders not to accept money from politicians without knowing where the money came from.

According to the ODM leader, doing so could plunge churches into a conspiracy to defraud.

“We support church growth… .we support church funding but we oppose using the church to run politics. “People should also not use the church for money laundering,” said Raila.

Speaking at a meeting with religious leaders at the Union Hall, Raila urged them to support the BBI process, saying it would benefit Kenyans.

Raila said the BBI report would ensure equity in revenue distribution while ignoring the stratification debate in the country, saying the nation could not move forward if the concept of rich and poor was developed.
