The service was presided over by head of the SDA Church in the world, Dr Ted Wilson and attended by hundreds of faithful from the region.
Earlier, Ongeri who invited political leaders to address the congregation warned his colleagues against introducing politics into the church function.
“This is a church function and politics should be kept aside,” Ongeri, a close ally of The National Alliance Party (TNA) presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta said in an apparent bid to restrain his colleagues from campaigning.
Mudavadi followed suit and only saluted the faithful before resuming his seat. He, however, answered questions fielded by journalists after the celebrations.
Nyamweya received Mudavadi and his entourage at Nyakoe shopping centre before leading him to the stadium for the function.
It was not immediately clear whether Nyamweya who is allied to PNU has joined Mudavadi’s UDF as he flanked him during media briefing and even hosted him for lunch at his Borabu home in Nyamira County after the function.
But Ongeri did not join the DPM and left the scene immediately after the function.
