Officially, the Kenyan parliament is secular. It doesn’t support or favour any religion. Yet, Kenyans are a deeply religious people. Our National Anthem is basically a prayer, and it is not uncommon to see the Speaker of the National Assembly or the Senate begin sessions with a word of prayer.
Often, a section of members of parliament of a particular faith will rally to oppose or support a bill in line with their religious beliefs.
