“Bottom Up New Akurinu Ministry” at Kabati area, Murang’a county, few metres off Kenol-Nairobi highway left Netizens wondering why the founder settled on a political expression as the name of his place of worship.

“Bottom Up” was a slogan by the UDA party during campaigns and now a government agenda.

Bishop Kiama Gachanja, the owner, explained why he settled on that name, saying he was aware of claims on social media he is trying to draw the attention of President William Ruto or his deputy Rigathi Gachagua.

“I prayed for Ruto to win and when it happened I decided to give my church the phrase he used to woo us,” Gachanja explained.
