A Kenyan court has charged cult leader cult leader Paul Mackenzie and 94 suspected accomplices with manslaughter over the deaths of more than 200 people.

Mackenzie and his co-accused – including the self-proclaimed pastor’s wife – pleaded not guilty to all charges on Tuesday in the court in Mombasa.

The 238 counts of manslaughter come after the group was charged with terrorism last week.

A judge last week ordered Mackenzie and dozens of others to undergo mental health tests to determine if they are fit to stand trial for murder at another court in the coastal town of Malindi.

In one of the world’s worst cult-related tragedies in recent history, 429 bodies – including those of children – were uncovered during months of exhumations across tens of thousands of acres of the remote Shakahola forest.
