As investigations into the devastating effects of the starvation cult in Kenya continue, which has resulted in the deaths of at least 109 people, new details have emerged regarding the alleged involvement of controversial preacher Paul Mackenzie. In the midst of these investigations, televangelist Ezekiel Odero has denied any links to Mackenzie, who was arrested last week and detained amid investigations into a myriad of charges, including fraud, money laundering, murder, aiding suicide, radicalization, crimes against humanity, and child cruelty.
According to an affidavit filed in court, it has been revealed that Mackenzie had only met with Odero between 2018 and 2022 when the latter was interested in purchasing a TV station. Odero has stated that he has no familial or friendly ties to Mackenzie, and their only interaction was during the TV station negotiations.
The investigations into the cult have unveiled shocking details of how members have been subjected to extreme forms of physical and mental abuse, including forced fasting and isolation. In addition, the cult leaders have been accused of extorting money from members and using it for personal gain.
The news of the cult’s activities has sparked outrage and calls for action from various sectors of society, including religious leaders, human rights activists, and government officials. The government has since taken steps to investigate and bring those responsible to justice, with many expressing hope that this will serve as a wake-up call to tackle other forms of religious extremism and abuse of power.
In the midst of all this, the denial of any association with Mackenzie by Odero, who is also a prominent religious leader in Kenya, is sure to raise eyebrows and spark further scrutiny. The investigation is ongoing, and the truth will eventually come to light, but for now, the focus remains on bringing an end to the cult’s reign of terror and providing justice for its victims.
