Citam atone after drought victims fundraiser appeal blooper

Christ is the Answer Ministries (Citam) on Friday hosted the national rugby sevens team Shujaa to a dinner, just days after online criticism for announcing a fundraiser for drought victims.

The sevens team that will be heading for the Hong Kong and Singapore legs of the World Sevens Series was treated to a sumptuous farewell dinner by the church.

The dinner comes just days after Citam was critisised for appealing for funds for Kenyans in Turkana and Baringo affected by drought.

Critics had urged the church to use its offerings to alleviate the suffering of the drought victims as opposed to fundraising.

Citam is among the biggest churches in the country with thousands of congregants spread across its 15 branches.

In 2015 the church posted an annual turnover of Sh1.016 billion shillings.
