Nairobi, Kenya – (African Boulevard News) – The Kenyan government has imposed a curfew on a ranch owned by a detained pastor in Shakahola Village, Kilifi County for 30 days. The curfew was announced as part of the ongoing investigation into a cult believed to be operating on the ranch.
According to reports, the pastor, whose name has been withheld by authorities, was arrested and detained last week after several complaints were filed against him by members of the community. The complaints revolve around claims that the pastor is running a cult on his ranch, where he is allegedly brainwashing and manipulating his followers.
In response to these allegations, the government has set a curfew from dusk until dawn and deployed security forces to maintain law and order within the ranch. District Commissioner, Mr. Kutswa Olaka, stated that the curfew will allow authorities to conduct investigations into the allegations against the pastor without any interference.
“The curfew will enable us to carry out our investigations without any interference from anyone. We are taking these allegations seriously, and we will not rest until we get to the bottom of this matter,” said Olaka.
Local residents have welcomed the move by the government, stating that the pastor’s activities have caused a lot of unrest in the village. “We are happy that the government has finally taken action. The activities of the pastor have caused a lot of unrest in our village, and we hope that justice will be served,” said one resident.
Meanwhile, human rights activists have raised concerns about the curfew, stating that it may be violating the rights of innocent people who are living on the ranch. “While we understand the need for the government to investigate these allegations, we are concerned about the impact that the curfew may have on innocent people living on the ranch. We urge the government to ensure that the rights of all people are respected,” said a local human rights activist.
In conclusion, the curfew imposed by the Kenyan government on the ranch owned by the detained pastor is a bold move aimed at investigating the allegations of cult activities on the property. While the move has been welcomed by local residents, concerns have been raised about its impact on innocent people living on the ranch. It is now up to the authorities to conduct thorough investigations and ensure that justice is served.
