15 students suspended over devil worship

17 June 2014, 10:19

Bungoma - The management committee of St Teresa’s Kabula Boy’s High School in Bumula sub-County last week suspended indefinitely 15 students after they confessed to be members of the Illuminati secret society.

A source at the school told journalists that the young scholars admitted that they were recruited to the cult by another student who joined the school from another institution in Nairobi.

“The 15 were on recruitment spree of more members to join the cult. They were found in possession of literature that glorified satanism and other writings that had signs of the Illuminati.  Others had tattoos on their bodies with marks associated with the group,” disclosed a teacher at the school who requested anonymity.

“When probed further, they admitted that they belonged to the sect. This has really sent shockwaves through the school,” he added.

The school Principal, Dismus Sibweche however refuted claims of devil worship at the institution.

Bungoma County Commissioner, Maalim Mohamed however confirmed that indeed the 15 students were sent home over devil worship allegations.

 He said his office was briefed over the matter and the county security and intelligence committee which he chairs, supports the harsh penalty given to the boys.

“From the report I got, I can confirm that the students were indefinitely suspended after admitting that they were members of the Illuminati secret society and others for involving themselves in activities that can be deemed as devil worship,” said the administrator.

“The matter is sensitive and has a lot of security implications as the group of suspended students could be attacked by their other colleagues,” he added.

Mohamed further appealed to parents to guide their children well spiritually so they do not fall into the trap of devil worship.
