Security agencies in Kibwezi Thursday ordered the closure of a church run by a self-proclaimed ghost-buster over alleged sex orgies.
Machinery Assistant County Commissioner Vitalis Ogur, who was accompanied by local police officers, ordered the closure of the ghost-buster premise.
Addressing residents at Masongaleni market where the said church operates from, Mr Ogur said he had received complaints that some church orderlies were involved in orgies involving school-going girls.
“We have agreed that the church will remain closed until we investigate the allegations levelled against the pastor and the church officials. We will get to the bottom of the matter,” he said.
Head of the Parents’ Association at a local school, Mary Mutembei, claimed a student had been impregnated by church officials, forcing her to drop out of school.

The pastor, however, defended himself against the accusations, saying ‘devil worshipping’ traders around the area were terrified by his ability to ‘neutralise’ their powers.
“These allegations are baseless. They are falsehoods peddled by traders who lead wayward lifestyles at the market and who have been unable to stomach our style of preaching and exorcising demons,” he said.
According to the pastor, his style of evangelism, which entails busting demons, had earned him enemies among fellow pastors and traders at the market.
“They have fought me since I first set base at the market one year ago,” said the pastor who was accompanied by his sister and two worshippers.
