A Catholic priest was yesterday suspended by the Catholic Church in Kenya after he recently got fame for rapping in church as a way of preaching the gospel.

Father Paul Ogalo of St. Monica Catholic Church in Rapogi, Migori County, south-west of Nairobi, was suspended on June 3 for alleged misconduct by the Homa Bay Diocese.

Fr Charles Kochiel, the judicial vicar of the inter-diocesan tribunal of Kisumu, confirmed the priest’s suspension.

The church officials took issue with Fr Ogalo’s style of preaching and suspended him for a year to ‘reconsider his manner of preaching.’

The rap music

The priest, 45, liked entertaining his congregation with rap music, which he said he uses to urge the youth to abandon the “evil deeds of the world and turn to Christ.”

“I use the rap music to bring … youths to the church. Thereafter, I bring them to Christ,” Fr Ogalo said during a recent interview.

He also said he used rap music to persuade young people to shun drugs and turn their attention to environmental and social justice issues.

Bishop Philip Anyolo, who heads the Homa Bay Diocese, said the priest has been suspended from public liturgical activities.
