Pastor Sons Body Resurrect, Police in Kitui are investigating an incident in which the family of a local pastor has been living with the remains of a child for 11 days. Police said the clergyman Kieti Mwangangi kept the body in the hope that he would resurrect his son by the power of prayer. Kitui police boss Lilian Okembo yesterday confirmed the arrest of the pastor.

Mwangangi used to be a pastor of the Redeemed Gospel Mission, but left the church for another. Okembo said he will be charged with the offence of neglecting to take the child to hospital when he fell sick.

The police boss said the badly decomposed body of the 11-year-old was retrieved from the pastor’s house at Museve market by the police.

She said neighbours were disturbed by the pungent smell emanating from his house and alerted the police. Assistant chief John Munyoki said yesterday Mwangangi’s neighbours reported to him about a foul smell coming from his house, where he lives with his family.

“When I went to find out what was the problem, I realised that one of the pastor’s child was missing,” said Munyoki. He said he inquired about his whereabouts only to discover the child had died on October 13.

“The decomposing body was lying on the bed covered with a blanket,” said Munyoki. “We kept the body of the child hoping that with the power of prayers, he would come back to life.

“Even now I know he will resurrect and that is what I believe,” said Mwangangi as police led him away. The Museve Redeemed Gospel Church pastor Robert Munyithya said the arrested pastor had left the church. He said Mwangangi was now preaching in a different church in the neighbouring Katulani district.
