Thika based clergyman Bishop David Ngari alias Gakuyo has urged his colleagues in the church ministry not to mislead their followers into believing that the newly launched Huduma card is demonic.

The presiding bishop of Calvary Chosen Center in Thika said some religious leaders were spreading rumours that the new registration bears the figures 666 associated with satanism.

"It is wrong for men of God to mislead their flock. I beseech you to stop misleading the people for we know the Huduma card is meant to enable Kenyans access government services with ease," said Ngari who is also Kiambu Governor James Nyoro's political advisor.

Speaking to journalists in Kiambu the Bishop also told politicians to avoid causing disunity among Kenyans over the BBI report and work towards uniting the country.

Governor James Nyoro said his government will facilitate the production of copies simplified copies of the proposed constitutional changes and urged the public to read for themselves and make informed choices.

Kiambu Town MP and his Gatundu South counterpart Moses Kuria said there's need for a consensus between those for and against amendments to the document.

Kuria raised his concern the appointment of IEBC officials among other issues should be deliberated by all parties, saying if the matter is not handled properly it would be a recipe for chaos.
