A popular church has come under fire yet again after a pastor allegedly caned one of his congregants for attending service at a different church.
The Class Eight pupil is said to be nursing serious injuries after the pastor at Winners’ Chapel in Eldoret, mercilessly flogged her.
According to reports, the girl has not been able to attend school as a result of the injuries inflicted on her.
The girl’s parents have faulted church officials for failing to take disciplinary action against the pastor.
Human rights activist Ken Wafula has threatened to lead a demonstration if the police fail to take action against the churchman.
Meanwhile, Eldoret West OCPD Samwel Mutunga has dismissed reports that the police are dragging their feet on the matter noting that the case is being investigated.
In June this year, Winners Chapel, Nairobi, came under sharp criticism following the killing of two owls that were found inside the church’s compound.
The images of the dead owls were shared by Pastor Patrick Ngutu who described them as ‘evil witches’.
