The death toll in a probe into a Kenyan cult suspected of urging followers to starve themselves to death rose to 226 on Wednesday after 15 more bodies were found, the authorities said.

Investigators are poring over the forest hideout of a group called the Good News International Church, located near the Indian Ocean town of Malindi.

Its founder, Paul Nthenge Mackenzie, a taxi driver-turned-preacher, is accused of inciting acolytes to fast to death “to meet Jesus.”

“Following today’s exercise, 14 bodies were exhumed and one was found in the forest,” regional commissioner Rhoda Onyancha said.
