‘Yesu Wa Tongaren’ Summoned in Cult Crackdown.


As the government strikes down on what it terms, rogue churches and radical religious leaders, police have summoned a contentious preacher,Yesu Wa Tongaren, about his suspicious religious teachings.

Eliud Wekesa alias ‘Yesu Wa Tongaren’ has led members of his church to believe that he is Jesus. Mr Wekesa has 12 disciples named after the descendants of the biblical Jacob.

The preacher, however, says he has done nothing wrong to warrant an arrest, adding that he only spreads the gospel.

This comes as investigators on Tuesday exhumed 21 more bodies in the coastal Kilifi county, bringing the total of those known to have died in Shakahola cult to 133.

A panel of investigation has been formed by President William Ruto to look into the so-called Shakahola cult fatalities in Kilifi county.
