Priests sacked over homosexuality seek legal redress

11 November 2015, 13:10 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Three priests of Anglican Church who were suspended on claims of participating in homosexuality have moved to court to challenge the decision.

They have sued the Church Commissioners of Kenya, an umbrella body for various churches, for withdrawing their licenses.

Through Wonge Maina and Onsare advocates, the priests have each filed a case at the Employment and Labour Relations court to challenge the decision they say has made it hard for them to freely interact with others people.

They are among five clergymen who were suspended on August following investigations by church’s Mount Kenya West Diocese.

Reverends John Njogu Gachau, Paul Mwangi Warui and James Maina have each filed a case through Wonge Maina and Onsare advocates.

They said Mt Kenya West ACK Bishop, Joseph Kagunda’s action to announce their suspension has created a harsh atmosphere for them.

The priests moved to court after the church leadership allegedly refused listen to them during their efforts to appeal the suspension decision.

They are seeking general damages for alleged slander, libel and psychological trauma caused by their suspension and allegations against them.

They are also seeking reinstatement and accrued salaries since the date of their suspension.

The three cases will be mentioned before Judge Justice Byram Ongaya on November 20.
