Please read Kenyan Bishops Protest Pay-to-Preach Law, by Heidi Boesl, at Mission Network News.
"Three hundred bishops in Central Kenya confronted a county governor last week to protest a new bill that would charge clergy for preaching outside of their churches. The bishops, who claim to represent as many as 1,200 churches within Nyeri County, marched to the governor’s office on Feb. 12 to protest against the Nyeri County Finance Bill that includes a section on charging preachers for speaking in public.
"The bill states that clergy must pay 10,000 Kenyan Shillings (approx. €85 or $116USD) per day to preach inside a stadium, 8,000 KES (€68 or $93USD) outside a stadium and 5,000 (€42 or $58USD) in rural areas. In Kenya, it is common for churches to hold evangelical events in stadia that can last from three or four days up to a week."
