This move follows reports of potential protests against the Finance Bill 2024, should the president engage in political discussions during the church event.

The officers have secured various roads to bolster safety measures and are bracing for potential demonstrations.

Additionally, church attendees are subjected to mandatory security screenings to safeguard the public, leaders, and clergy, according to Citizen TV.

This decision comes amidst plans for 'occupy churches' protests aimed at political leaders backing the bill, amid mounting calls for its withdrawal.
