Representatives of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) splinter group, Nairobi Cosmopolitan Conference (NCC), have petitioned government investigative agencies to arrest suspected corrupt officials.
They called on the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to take urgent steps to restore the image of the church, which has been sullied.
Led by George Morara Simi and Kennedy Mogire, they lamented that the church had become ‘a den of corruption’.
“We are not fighting for top leadership positions but for transparency and accountability. All we want is a reorganised structure in the management of the church,” Mr Morara told the Nation.
“It is shameful that this kind of rot is happening in the church, where good morals are taught. Corrupt leaders in the church should be arrested and charged,” he said.
