    Nairobi, Kenya – (African Boulevard News) – As the death toll linked to a suspected starvation cult in Kenya continues to rise, the relatives of missing cult followers are growing increasingly anxious for news of their loved ones. Officials have confirmed that the number of victims has climbed to 95, with many more believed to be missing.

    At a morgue in Malinda, distraught family members have been waiting for updates on the fate of their loved ones. The identities of the victims remain unclear, with many cult followers believed to have changed their names and cut off all contact with their families.

    “Everyone is very worried and anxious,” said one relative, who declined to give her name. “We just want to know what has happened to our loved ones. We need closure, whatever the outcome.”

    The suspected cult, known as the “House of Yahweh”, has been linked to several deaths and disappearances in Kenya in recent years. The group is believed to practice extreme fasting and self-flagellation, and has been accused of brainwashing its members.

    “This is a tragic situation, and our hearts go out to the families of the victims,” said a spokesman for the Kenyan government. “We are doing everything in our power to investigate this group and bring those responsible to justice.”

    The House of Yahweh has been under investigation by Kenyan authorities for several years, with many members arrested and charged with various crimes. The group’s leader, David Owuor, has denied any wrongdoing, and has accused the government of persecuting his followers.

    “We are not a cult, we are a community of believers,” said Owuor in a recent interview. “We believe in the power of prayer and fasting to bring about positive change in the world. We are not responsible for the deaths of any of our members.”

    Despite the denials, many Kenyans remain concerned about the influence of the House of Yahweh, and the danger it poses to vulnerable individuals. The government has vowed to crack down on the group, but for the relatives of missing cult followers, the wait for news continues.

    “We just want to know what has happened to our loved ones,” said another relative at the morgue. “We need closure, whatever the outcome.”
