Nairobi, KENYA: Church leaders want Attorney General Prof Githu Muigai to resign over registration of atheist body in the country.

The leaders on Friday said failure to that, they have vowed to stage demonstrations across the country to express their disappointment over the issue.

In a media briefing in Nairobi National Congress of Pentecostal churches Vice Chair Stephen Ndichu leading other leaders vehemently condemned the action terming it as a violation of the constitution and doctrine of church institution in the country.

“We register our disgust against attorney general for the way he has casually ,and in contempt has been handling religious issues in this country.” Ndichu said.

Ndichu demanded that Prof Muigai rescind such move if not so they will mobilise all religious organizations across the country to engage in peacefull demonstrations to oppose such move.

“We shall also mobilise all Kenyans who believe in Gods existence irrespective of religious affiliation and persuasion to demonstrate countrywide until our demand is met,” Ndichu insisted.

He indicated that the religious leaders including Muslims, Christians and Hindus are in initial stages of dealing with the registration including going to court over the matter.

“We are demanding that AG deregisters this society forthwith, failure to which we will seek legal redress to have deregistered.” Ndichu said.

The church leaders claimed that the group is pushing for the scrapping of religious subjects in learning institutions and registration of atheists, a development they say is against the spirit of faith in country.
