In this week’s news round-up, three Kenyan churches have now switched conference allegiances, an Adventist pastor is charged with allegedly defrauding an insurance company, Oakwood University is accused of not taking sexual assault allegations seriously, and legal actions continue for fired Adventist physician in Colorado.

Kenyan Adventists Continue to Splinter. The KPCU SDA Church, which is situated in Nairobi, Kenya, voted to switch allegiance from Central Kenyan Conference (CKC) to the breakaway Nairobi Cosmopolitan Conference (NCC), becoming the third group to do so. KPCU’s neighbor, Saika West SDA church also held its church business meeting and voted to join NCC. Saika church is however yet to notify CKC or NCC of the decision.

KPCU - Church - Kangemi - Mountain - View

The KPCU church joins Kangemi’s Mountain View SDA and Meru-based Makandi SDA church that severed links with CKC and joined the splinter group of NCC. The new entity deployed Pastor Kennedy Nyachiro who conducted services at Makandi.

The split was sparked by leadership wrangles at Nairobi Central SDA church, popularly known as Maxwell, in the last few months. Private security men were hired by Kiragu after the expulsion of 15 members he accuses of being behind the chaos that saw the church temporarily closed. Some faithful have criticized the move to hire private security. The 15 have recorded a statement at Kilimani Police Station after head pastor Jean Pierre Maiywa claimed his life was in danger. The move to decamp has, however, not been accepted by CKC, which terms it irregular on grounds that NCC is a private company that cannot run churches. From Standard Media, “SDA row deepens as another church quits conference” and from Kahawa Tungu, “Crisis In SDA Church Deepens As Several Churches Quit Central Kenya Conference.”
