Priest Arrested Over Links With Mungiki

A Senior clergyman with African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa has been arrested in Maragua District over his association with the unregistered Mungiki Sect.

The clergyman was thrown into the cells on Monday afternoon moments after he presented himself to the police to inquire why he was being sought.

Security sources said the clergyman was being sought by police after he allegedly attended several Mungiki sect meetings where oathing was done.

Confirming the arrest, Maragua District Police Chief Mrs Rebecca Mulle said police are interested to know more about the sect from the priest.

She said the police had information on how the priest at one of the sect meetings was given water and a piece of meat during an oathing session.

Mulle said the force will continue to flush out Mungiki sect followers from their hideouts and appealed to the members of the public to assist police with information.

In Laikipia, self-confessed Mungiki sect members over the weekend continued to surrender to the police as the February 11 dead-line approaches.

The government last week promised not to prosecute the sect members who surrender by February 11 warning of stern action against those who fail to own up.

On Sunday, 12 more members of the sect surrendered to the police in the district bringing to 75 the number of members who have owned up since the crack-down on them started three weeks ago.
