A second starvation cult has been uncovered in Kenya with 31 people locked up without food.

Police said the group were found weak and hungry after starving themselves for almost a week.

Among the rescued were 14 adults and 17 children as young as two.

Detectives in Nakuru arrested a 62-year-old woman suspected of being the spiritual leader of the Army Rurwama group.

Followers of the cult were confined to a house at Kamwene ‘B’ village in Kihingo for a fellowship, fasting, and prayers.

Hellen Wanjiru Weri was arrested in a Saturday raid, reports the Nation.
It comes after a report from a 66-year-old woman from Moi’s Bridge in the Uasin Gishu region, according to the Kenyan news outlet.

The woman said her daughter, who had secured a job as a community health nurse, refused to report to work and instead travelled to Njoro for the prayers and fasting.

Police reports claim that the woman said her daughter had been locked up at Wanjiru’s house without food for several days for prayers and fasting.

On Saturday, police tracked her daughter’s phone, arrested Wanjiru and freed the 31 people.

Officers found that the complainant had found work for her 35-year-old daughter who refused to turn up, choosing to travel to Njoro instead.

The police report allegedly said the daughter was a mum of four who had secured employment as a health nurse.

It said she was set to begin work on April 26 “however refused to report to work and travelled to Nakuru.”

It added: “Officers found the members [of the group] confined to one house belonging to Ms Wanjiru.
