After beginning with comparing the use made by Jomo Kenyatta and Bishop David Gitari of the Old Testament story of King Ahab stealing of Naboth’s vineyard (1 Kings 21), I provide the context in the Dioceses of Mount Kenya East and Kirinyaga, and then comment on Gitari’s sermons on Naboth, Daniel chapter 6 (changes to the constitution) and 1 Kings 12 (the division of the kingdom) with his applications to contemporary politics in Kenya. Included also are vivid descriptions of a scriptural litany on the environment and a Kenyan passion play.
