Sometimes, it gets messy, as it is today. What should be the relationship between the Church and the State; should men of God who are supposed to be neutral take sides in political matters without restraints; where should the romance between the church and politics stop? Some clerics believe that though it is good to tell politicians the truth, men of God should not get too involved because of the dangers it portends, as put together by CHRIS IREKAMBA.
