Government unveils plan to rein in errant preachers

11 January 2016, 14:12

Nairobi - The government has moved in to rein in errant preachers by introducing a new set of rules to govern religious societies.

Under the new rules, all preachers will have to produce a certificate of good conduct and another for Theological training from accredited institutions. 

in addition, it will be mandatory for religious societies to clearly show the statement of their doctrine of faith, society programmes, ministries and all activities it wishes to engage in as well as the persons involved.

The Attorney General, Githu Muigai said the rules will be implemented in a year’s time, and will affect imams, pastors, rabbis and other religious leaders.

In a report published by Standard, religious societies will be required to be open to the Attorney General's inspection at all times. 

The new rules are aimed at protecting Kenyans from preachers who exploit them commercially or teach radical doctrines.

Last week, the Communications Authority of Kenya banned preachers who ask for money in exchange for prayers.
