Pastor Ezekiel and Mackenzie are going nowhere, they will be released soon – Ruto’s man

Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei has caused controversy by suggesting that two pastors charged with serious crimes in Kenya, Paul Mackenzie and Ezekiel Odero, will likely walk free.

The two pastors have been charged with terrorism, murder, and genocide in relation to their alleged involvement in a cult in Kilifi that has been linked to the deaths of hundreds of people.

Cherargei, an ally of President William Ruto, took to Twitter to suggest that the charges against the pastors would not be successful in court.

He argued that the threshold for proving terrorism, genocide, and murder was too high and that the prosecutors should instead focus on charges such as manslaughter or accessory to murder.

While acknowledging that many Kenyans are emotional about the deaths that have occurred in Kilifi, Cherargei emphasized that evidence would be needed to prove the charges against the accused.

He warned that unless the prosecution can present a strong case, the pastors would walk free despite the gravity of the crimes they have been accused of committing.

Cherargei also criticized the blanket condemnation of religious leaders based on the actions of a few individuals.

He argued that while rogue clerics should be weeded out, religious organizations should not be profiled based on the actions of a small minority.

The controversial comments by Senator Cherargei have attracted criticism from various quarters, with many arguing that they undermine efforts to bring those responsible for the Kilifi cult to justice.

Some have accused the senator of trying to interfere with the judicial process and of downplaying the seriousness of the charges faced by the pastors.
