Kenya’s Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof Kithure Kindiki before the Senate Ad hoc Committee on the Proliferation of Religious Organisations which is investigating the Shakahola deaths.

Paul Nthenge Mackenzie, a taxi driver-turned-preacher, used armed gangs with blunt objects to kill some of his followers who took too long to die and those who changed their minds during a fast to death “to meet Jesus”, Kenya’s Interior minister said on Friday.

Kithure Kindiki, the Cabinet Secretary for Interior, told a Senate ad hoc committee on the proliferation of religious organisations that the armed gangs built structures next to the burial sites where they had a menu of well-balanced diets while they watched over followers starving to death.

The discovery of mass graves last month has stunned the country in what has been dubbed the “Shakahola forest massacre”.

Police believe most of the bodies belong to followers of Mackenzie who is accused of inciting them to starve to death “to meet Jesus.”
