Five clergymen suspended over homosexuality

10 September 2015, 21:31 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Five clergymen of Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) in Mount Kenya region have been suspended from service on claims of participating in homosexuality.

While making the announcement in Nyeri town on Thursday Mt Kenya West Diocese Bishop Joseph Kagunda said licenses of the five preachers have already been withdrawn.

Kagunda said four of the preachers are married men with wives and children and only one who is not married.

He said some have been in the church for more than 20 years.

Kagunda explained that in mid August he received a complaint from a young who went to him seeking prayers for deliverance from guilt conscious after participating in homosexuality with a senior clergy in the diocese.

“On receiving this report a church discipline tribunal was instituted in accordance with the church constitution. The case was tried and a number of witnesses appeared. In the course of investigations and tribunal proceedings four other clergymen were adversely mentioned,” said Kagunda.

He added that some of the suspended have confessed their involvement in gayism.

They are from Othaya, Karatina, Murang’a and Nyeri town with the Bishop stating that the suspension was issued by a 30-member Standing Committee of Synod made of laymen, bishops and clergies.

Kagunda, however, concealed the identity of the preachers explaining that the church is giving them opportunity to repent and reform their ways.

“We are compelled to conceal their identities because despite going through the church process they have a right to appeal. The Bible which is our guide requires that believers should resolve the issues in house,” Kagunda stated.

He added that the church in Africa will not condone homosexuality although it has been allowed in other Western countries.
