Registrar of Societies shuts down Pastor Ezekiel's church

Pastor Ezekiel's church is among the 5 churches canceled by government

Pastor Ezekiel Odero

In a significant move aimed at curbing the proliferation of rogue religious institutions, the Registrar of Societies has announced the cancellation of the registrations of several churches

Among the 5 churches that have been canceled include Newlife Prayer Centre, a Church linked to Pastor Ezekiel Odero.

After several concerns form Kenyans about the exploitation of vulnerable individuals by unscrupulous religious entities, the Kenyan government took a proactive step by revoking the registrations of five churches.

"In exercise of the powers conferred by section 12 (1) of the Societies Act, the Registrar of Societies cancels the registration of the societies specified in the first column of the Schedule, with effect from the respective dates specified in the third column of the Schedule, " the notice read in part.

This regulatory action underscores the government's commitment to holding religious institutions accountable for their actions and ensuring public welfare.

This comes in the wake of recent investigations involving Pastor Ezekiel in cases of money laundering and alleged cult activities.

In the aftermath of his arrest, Pastor Ezekiel Odero filed a lawsuit against the government, seeking compensation for the physical, financial, reputational, and emotional distress he endured during the investigation.

Helicopter of Christ Church, under the leadership of Thomas Wahome, was recently embroiled in a land grabbing controversy involving Nairobi Dam land.

Kings Outreach Church's separation from the larger umbrella of churches affiliated with Prophet David Owuor raised eyebrows, while Goodnews International Ministries, led by controversial Shakahola cult leader Pastor Paul Mackenzie, has been linked to the exhumation of over 450 bodies on its premises.
