Finger of God resurrects in Mombasa
By PATRICK BEJA
They came, caused a stir then went dead. Now they have resurrected.
A group associated with Placenta Party of Kenya and controversial Finger of God Church have announced shifting base from Nairobi to Mombasa.
The group said they would form a political movement with Higher Education minister William Ruto and embark on campaigns for 2012 General Election.
Joseph Hellon, wife Veneyard, Quincy Timberlake and Esther Arunga said they have shifted to the coast to launch their political activities.
Hellon and Timberlake claimed they were in discussion for a possible formation of a political movement with Mr Ruto with focus on the 2012 polls.
Timberlake said they may come up with Red Revolution Movement or Red Conservatives Party.
"Our headquarters for our political party cease to be in Nairobi. We will be carrying out our political programmes from Mombasa," said Timberlake when they visited the Standard newsroom in Mombasa.
Timberlake announced he has acquired a house in upmarket Nyali estate where he hoped to enjoy peace with wife Esther.
Timberlake claimed they campaigned vigorously for the ‘No’ camp during the referendum adding that they are among those calling for amendment of the new constitution.
At the Coast, they said they have applied for permits to hold political rallies at Tononoka and Khadija grounds.
"We want to address issues of land, drug abuse and environment particularly conservation of Mijikenda kaya forests and mangroves at
the Coast,"said Esther.
Timberlake claimed they have been operating from private houses to avoid police harassment particularly in Nairobi.
