The 26-year-old leader of the church, ‘Prophetess’ Joyce Mukumbi, on Monday was taken to Port Reitz hospital in Mombasa for a psychiatric assessment. Psychiatrists refused to do it, saying they first need a court order.
This comes after there were reports of people invading land and questions of why there were individuals who were living in the forests.
However, one of the leaders, highlighted that they were being persecuted because of their faith to God.
He stated,”Our children go to school and hospital when they get sick. We know there are enemies sent by their master the devil to make sure the word of God is not preached.”
However, other human right agencies have come up to reprimand the police for arresting someone because of where they live.
They stated,”People cannot invade someone’s land or live deep in the forest and establish themselves for more than a decade and police have no idea,”
“Now we see arrests and cases being registered. We have experience enough to see that in the past where when such arrests are made, many innocent people found themselves behind bars.”
