ارتفاع عدد موتى الطائفة الدينية في كينيا

By Ninian Carter

April 26, 2023 - عدد القتلى يتزايد بين أتباع طائفة كينية قادتهم ليصدقوا أنهم سيذهبون إلى الجنة إذا جوعوا أنفسهم حتى الموت.

The death toll among followers of a Kenyan starvation cult called the Good News International Church, has reached at least 90, with the Red Cross saying more than 200 people are still missing.

Pastor Paul Mackenzie Nthenge, who heads the cult, is accused of luring followers to the 320-hectare coastal Shakahola ranch, and convincing them to fast until death in order to what he claims “meet Jesus”.

Nthenge has been arrested twice in connection with the deaths of children – once in 2019 and again in March this year. Each time he was released on bail.
