Worth Noting:

  • In her yesterday Facebook post Mwangaza who is also a Bishop at Baite Family Fellowship (BFF) a church owned by her family, revealed that the School is enrolling form one and two students.
  • “This is the Best Place for our kids, Needy Children and Orphans with Excellent performance will benefit 100 %. So help me God. Never again in Meru County will the Needy best kids cry for a good school,” read part of the FB post from Mwangaza.
  • “Congrats ‘mweshimiwa’ that a great move but please I think the name is not clear. A saint I think is not correct better call it Mwangaza School’s or bishop Mwangaza schools. I can’t see saint bishop being applicable,” said Tosh.
  • “Wanaomjudge (those judging) Madam Kawira are you mini-gods or who gave you the authority to judge? Keep thriving Hon. Bishop Kawira… God is with you,” Penzi O Bekamu said.

Meru woman representative Kawira Mwangaza has caused a heated online discussion following an announcement of her new school dubbed “St. Bishop Mwangaza Schools”.

Various Kenyans criticized use of the word ‘Saint’ alleging the woman Rep of naming herself as saint.

The new school will be based in her new constructed storey building next to her local family Television Station known as Baite TV.

In her yesterday Facebook post Mwangaza who is also a Bishop at Baite Family Fellowship (BFF) a church owned by her family, revealed that the School is enrolling form one and two students.

The Woman Rep noted that the school would benefit needy Children and Orphans with Excellent performance.

“This is the Best Place for our kids, Needy Children and Orphans with Excellent performance will benefit 100 %. So help me God. Never again in Meru County will the Needy best kids cry for a good school,” read part of the FB post from Mwangaza.

She also revealed that the school would offer extra lessons such as Music, computer studies and video production.

Larger number of Facebook users, however, felt that the name ‘saint’ was erroneously used.

Most of the users took to social media to criticize the women representative alleging her of terming herself as a saint.

Andrew Ratanya Mukaria a Facebook user lauded the MP for coming up with a new school to assist the needy but questioned use of the name ‘saint’.

“Great endeavor, but St? Does not make sense,” Mukaria said.

Phinoo Tosh a fan too demanded erasing of the word saint in the school name.

“Congrats ‘mweshimiwa’ that a great move but please I think the name is not clear. A saint I think is not correct better call it Mwangaza School’s or bishop Mwangaza schools. I can’t see saint bishop being applicable,” said Tosh.

Dear Mama County, congratulations for the wonderful step. If you removed the name ‘Saint ‘ to just read BISHOP MWANGAZA SCHOOLS, it would be more beautiful, excellent and meaningful. Remain focused,” said Lilian Murea, a Facebook user too.

Wyra Baariu said, “I thought ‘St’ is used on specifics. You can’t just introduce a prefix ‘St’ anyhow,”

“When did u die, Canonized and became Saint Mama county. Choose the name of your project without exaggeration,” Geoffrey Gitonga Joffa a fan questioned.

Despite this some of the fans of the woman Rep defended her use of the word Saint.

“For those negative people always there to judge this is what saint means learn to use your dictionary,” Dorie Kendi Kesh defended the woman Rep.

Bekamu a Facebook user called on the Meru MP to keep on the good work despite the critics.

“Wanaomjudge (those judging) Madam Kawira are you mini-gods or who gave you the authority to judge? Keep thriving Hon. Bishop Kawira… God is with you,” Penzi O Bekamu said.

According to Cambridge Dictionary the word saint means ‘a person who has received an official honor from the Christian, especially the Roman Catholic, Church for having lived in a good and holy way’ or ‘a holy person, especially one who has been officially honored with this title by a Christian church’. The names of saints are sometimes used to name places and buildings.
