- The Archbishop said it is important to maintain the trust and confidence of the public.
- "We choose to reassure Kenyans that this is not their tax used in this event," he said.
The steering committee of the expected Benny Hinn crusade has said no public funds have been used in preparing for the nationwide prayer meeting.
The Benny Hinn crusade is set to take place from February 24 to 25 at the Nyayo National Stadium.
Chairman of the Organising Committee Archbishop Harrison Nganga on Tuesday said the mega crusade is organised by churches in Kenya and Kenyans of goodwill who gave their support in cash and kind.
"This event has been organised, funded, and coordinated by the Churches of Kenya, which include both mainstream churches and evangelical churches, to connect the Body of Christ in Kenya with the Global Body of Christ," he said.
He said the government does not fund religious activities. The Archbishop said it is important to maintain the trust and confidence of the public.
"We choose to reassure Kenyans that this is not their tax used in this event," he said.
Archbishop Nganga said they are working with key stakeholders to host over 60,000 Kenyans and international guests from over 20 countries.
Archbishop Nganga said they are fully committed to ensuring the success of the crusade and upholding the highest standards of integrity and transparency.
He noted it is common ministry practice for faith leaders from outside Kenya to visit the country and for Kenyan faith leaders to receive invitations to minister in other countries
"This enables the cross-pollination of grace and effective engagement of the fivefold ministry," he said.
The Archbishop said Kenya is open to all visitors, both for tourism, business, and even faith-related and charitable activities.
Further, he said there will be security agencies to ensure all the over 60,000 Kenyans and visitors expected at the event will be safe.
He added that the crusade will be televised on various media and online channels to ensure that all Kenyans have a chance to join the crusade.
"As a steering committee, our primary focus remains delivering a spiritually uplifting and impactful experience for all attendees of the mega crusade. We invite the public to join us in this celebration of faith and unity," he said.
Benny Hinn is an American evangelist, teacher and author.
He returns to Kenya after two decades.
