A Kenyan court on Thursday released on bond televangelist Ezekiel Odero who was detained last week as investigations started into the deaths of dozens of people said to have starved themselves to death on the instructions of a cult leader Paul Mackenzie.

Pastor Odero was arrested on Thursday last week, with Kenya’s Interior Minister Kithure Kindiki accusing him of involvement in the “mass killing of his followers”. The minister did not elaborate on the accusation.

Mr Odero is being investigated for murder, aiding suicide, abduction, radicalisation, genocide, crimes against humanity, child cruelty, fraud, money laundering and being an accessory to crimes.

The government wanted to detain the televangelist for 30 more days as investigations continued.

In an affidavit filed in court, the state said plans were underway for the medical procedure before a decision could be made on whether or not to charge Mr Odero.
