Clergy protest against their colleagues for suing Bishop in defamation case

03 October 2016, 20:58 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Hundreds of Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) faithful including clergymen drawn from Mount Kenya West Diocese have held peaceful protests in Nyeri town.

The church faithful while waving placards protested in show of solidarity with Church Bishop Joseph Kagunda who is facing a defamation case in court against three priests drawn from the church.

The protesters stated that they will not allow the church to be divided, vowing to stand firm with the Bishop for the unity of the Church.

The same protesters had earlier thronged a Nyeri court where the defamation case was coming up for mention.

The three priests including Archdeacon John Njogu Gachau, Rev James Maina Maigua and Rev Paul Mwangi Warui, sued the Bishop alleging that their names were tarnished after been accused of engaging in homosexuality last year.

During the mention the court gave both parties 60 days to carry out a pre-trial exercise, a period in which they will file new documents and exchange statements for their witnesses in order to prepare for defense.

Last month the court awarded the three priests KES.6.8 million in compensation after they were suspended last year on allegations that they were homosexuals.

Justice Byram Ongaya also found their dismissal by the church unfair and ordered that they be reinstated.

The judge said, considering how the issue of homosexuality is viewed in Kenya, such allegations must have caused a lot of psychological trauma to the three priests.
