Over 400 Victims of Fasting to Death Cult in Kenya – Children Beaten to Death

There is no end to the account of her dead heresy in Kenya which convinced a crowd of people to to fast to death, with the official account of the authorities stating that more than 400 bodies have been found.

“The forensic team managed to locate 12 bodies” today Monday, the prefect told reporters Rhoda Oniada. The total number of dead is 403, but authorities believe the toll will rise even further. Investigations are ongoing in this forested, isolated area on the coast of Kenya, almost three months after the first victims were identified of the so-called “Sakahola Forest Massacre”.

Police believe most of the bodies belong to her followers International Church of the Good Newsto which founded by self-proclaimed pastor Paul Dhenge Mackenzie. The former taxi driver, who held since April 14 and will be tried for “terrorism”, he urged believers to fast unto death “to meet Jesus” before the end of the world comes. Another 16 people are accused of being his accomplices because they had taken it upon themselves to ensure that the faithful did not break their fast and did not leave the forest.

Autopsies revealed that most of the victims died of starvation. Some, including small children, were strangled or beaten to death.

This tragedy shocked Kenya and the government was heavily criticized for not stopping the action of “Pastor” Mackenzie, even though he had been arrested several times for his extreme preaching. The president William Ruto set up a task force to examine the legal and regulatory framework governing the nearly 4,000 “churches” operating in the country.

The Interior Ministry announced that the Sakahola Forest will be turned into a “place of remembrance” for the victims.
