Another cult? Police ‘rescue’ 200. A possible religious kidnapping is being looked into by Kwale County police in the village of Vumbu in Msambweni.

This is in response to the discovery in a forest of more than 200 persons who were reportedly engaged in extreme religious practices at a church named Rainbow Faith Ministries-Vumbu, a sect that split off from the main SDA church in Vumbu.

The 23-year-old church leader and alleged self-declared prophetess Joyce Mkumbi is one of those detained.This is in response to the discovery in a forest of more than 200 persons who were reportedly engaged in extreme religious practices at a church named Rainbow Faith Ministries-Vumbu, a sect that split off from the main SDA church in Vumbu.

A secondary school teacher who had resigned his work to participate in the religious activities and was sleeping in a forest was among those arrested, according to a close source to the Nation.

According to a verified account by Zephaniah Apoko, the Kwale County Children’s Coordinator, the church demanded that its adherents abandon their houses and remain at the center in the forest in order to observe and firmly abide by its teachings.

 

In addition, they had to pray three times each day and three times each night without ceasing. Children had to skip school in order to attend the prayers.

Francis Auma, a rapid response officer for Muslim for Human Rights, said police should make sure they do not violate human rights even while conducting investigations.

Residents of the village had complained of harassment by police during the investigations over the past two weeks, prompting the majority of them to hide in the forest, according to Mr. Auma, who visited the village.

We demand that the security operation and the examination of church members take place within the bounds of the law, the man stated.
