The website goes on to quote Farouk Kirunda, a Press Secretary to the president, who stated that State House wasn’t behind Odongo. However after deep investigations, it has been revealed that the allegations are simply aimed at mudslinging Bishop Odongo, who according to reliable sources is the outright favourite candidate among the contestants.
It has also been alleged that one of the local pastors went about promising some of the pastors authorised to vote in the elections things like houses and agricultural equipment especially tractors for their communities.
Sources have revealed that according to the constitution of the NFBPC that for one to stand for the position of overseer, one should have been under the fellowship for 15 years. The source further reveals that Odongo has been a member for the NFBPC for 15 years while his opponent hasn’t clocked even 2 years.
