23 with being cult members

September 12, 2015
Twenty-three people were charged yesterday in a Makadara court with being members of an unlawful group.

The 14 men and nine women are accused of being in a cult that has been terrorising residents of Kayole estate, Nairobi.

The court heard the suspects claimed they were members of New Jerusalem Fellowship Church but did not supply police with any documentation at the time of the arrest.

The prosecution said the suspects were members of an outlawed group called Gaza.

Police said the suspects have been meeting on Wednesdays from 2-4am.

Police received the information from the public, laid an ambush and arrested the 23 in a building.

The suspects denied the charges before principal magistrate Edwin Githinji.

They were released on Sh10,000 bail each.

The case will be mentioned on September 24.
