Kilifi Tragedy: Extreme Religious Teachings Lead to Death and Malnutrition

Wycliffe Waimoi didn’t let the thought of leaving his family behind stop him from traveling to Kilifi to see Pastor Paul Mackenzie’s sermons in person in 2017.

He had never missed one of Mackenzie’s online sermons as he had subscribed to his Times TV YouTube channel, and whenever a new video was uploaded, he would receive a notification on his phone.

However, after fasting for 21 days, Waimoi was found by police, who rescued 15 people, four of whom died of suspected starvation, all followers of the controversial Good News International Church of Pastor Mackenzie.

Allan Obiero, a 17-year-old boy, also fasted for six days before being rescued by the police. Investigations suggest that it was at Mackenzie’s home that he shaped the beliefs of his followers, some of whom are now being investigated for alleged horrific crimes, including starving and killing their children and burying them in shallow graves.
