Monday February 8, 2020 - Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop, Jackson Ole Sapit, has said that the country needs divine intervention to deal with the desert locust invasion.

Speaking at St Thomas ACK Cathedral, Kerugoya, on Sunday, Sapit said that the Bible is clear that every time the locusts invade a country, it’s a sign of God's displeasure with his people.

He said that though the Government is trying to fight the locust menace in eleven Counties, Christians should repent and ask for God forgiveness as we have erred.
The Prelate said that the church should lead in repentance and also called on political leaders to go back to God as he’s clearly not happy with the way they are doing.
“I ask every one of us to repent and go back to God as locust invasion is a clearer sign that God is not happy with us,” he said.
Over the last 2 months, a swarm of desert locusts have invaded 11 Counties and destroyed thousands of acres of crops.

Among the most affected Counties are Wajir, Marsabit, Meru, Kirinyaga, Muranga, Kiambu, Kitui, Garissa, Machakos, Baringo, Turkana and Makueni.
