Ten Pastors Arrested In Church Scandal


Ten pastors and seven church board members have been arrested over a disagreement concerning the management of a Bible school.

The seven people who belong to the Church of Restoration in Thika were arrested on Friday.

Thika Deputy OCPD Bernard Ayoo said they raided International Gospel Outreach Bible School after they were alerted by principal David Njoroge.

The OCPD said Njoroge told them a group of armed pastors had stormed into the school and locked its gates, and was destroying property.

The principal, who pastors the college chapel, castigated the pastors for the destruction of property.

But board member Alice Ruhiu said the principal and the board were in disagreement over an audit report.

The pastors and board members were released on Sh5,000 cash bail each pending investigations that will determine whether they should be charged tomorrow.
