Residents of Vihiga were left tongue tied after unknown people broke into Mumbita Church of God Luanda, and relieved themselves inside the senior pastor’s office.

The incident has forced the umbrella body; Church of GOD in East Africa (Kenya) – to organise a cleansing ceremony slated for Tuesday, November 9 – in an attempt to wade off evil spirits and rededicate Mumbita to God. According to the welfare director at the Church’s General assembly Wycliffe Ochieng, the thieves also made away with 40 litres of paint that had been stored inside the church.

 Ochieng who also doubles up as Mumbita Church of God, Head of Development Department, said that the suspects must have broken into the church on Sunday night. Sources indicate that the incident at Mumbita Church is the fifth in a string of case reported in Vihiga – involving church burglary. In most of these cases, faeces have been deposited inside the church.       

 Just this year, three churches in Mwibona ward alone, including Wemilabi Church of God, have been broken into by criminals – and property stolen. There was yet another incident in August where criminals broke into ACK St Mark, Emako parish, and stole property worth Ksh 150,000 and like in the other cases – the criminals relieved themselves inside the church.  

 Joash Owila, the head of ACK St Mark, Emako Parish, warned that the perpetrators against breaking into churches – noting that they were inviting God’s wrath on themselves. He also asked the suspects to repent.
