Gacanka EAPC congregation in Meru County was treated to a rude shock when a verbal exchange of bitter words between warring groups provoked two of their church leaders to engage in a physical fight.
The congregation had gathered at the church compound to deliberate on how best to resolve standing misunderstandings on the leadership of the church during which the unexpected incident occurred.
Some members of the congregation pointed a blame finger to the former leadership which had been ousted for their misconduct and mismanagement of the church affairs and resources.
The group of church members who refused to give their names for fear of being victimized pointed out that the ousted secretary general Mr. Geoffrey Muthinia and a former chairman Mr. Robert Banda had embarked on a deliberate mission to ensure the church operations were brought to a halt.
The two former leaders of the Gacanka church were said to have tried to impose a pastor on the faithful without making any clear arrangements on where the sitting presiding pastor would move to.
The two leaders being implicated in causing chaos in the church declined to speak to the media to give their comments on the prevailing state of issues.
However, sources at the regional headquarters based at Mwendantu in Meru town promised to come back to the media for comments after investigations on the matter were complete.
