A controversial Kenyan preacher has been summoned by police as the government cracks down on what it calls rogue churches and extremist religious leaders.

Eliud Wekesa, popularly known as “Jesus of Tongaren”, the leader of the New Jerusalem sect, was summoned on Tuesday for questioning about his suspicious religious teachings.

He has led members of his church to believe that he is Jesus. Mr Wekesa has 12 disciples named after the descendants of the biblical Jacob.

He is expected to appear before police in the western county of Bungoma on Wednesday.

The preacher, however, says he has done nothing wrong to warrant an arrest, adding that he only spreads the gospel, local media reported.
