In a shocking turn of events, Rhoda Mumbua Maweu, the wife of Paul Mackenzie, has been arrested in connection with the ongoing investigation into the Kilifi cult that convinced members to starve to death to meet God. The police also arrested Mumbua’s aunt from their hideout in Mtwapa.
Mumbua was identified as a key figure within the church’s operations, and as part of the investigation, the police have been reviewing Mackenzie’s phone records and interviewing individuals connected to the church. It was during this process that Mumbua’s name came up as a person of interest.
According to reports, Mumbua is being investigated as a ‘human resource manager’ for Mackenzie’s administration. The police are looking into her role in the cult and her involvement in convincing members to starve themselves to death. It is believed that Mackenzie and his followers believed that they would meet God if they fasted for 40 days.
The Kilifi cult made headlines last month after reports emerged that several members had died after refusing to eat. The cult’s leaders claimed that the members had ascended to heaven and that their deaths were a sign of their devotion to God.
The police have been investigating the cult’s leaders, including Mackenzie, and their followers. They have also been working to identify other individuals who may have been involved in the cult’s operations.
The arrest of Mumbua is a significant development in the investigation and highlights the police’s commitment to bringing those responsible for the cult’s activities to justice. The authorities are urging anyone with information related to the cult to come forward and assist with the investigation.
The Kilifi cult is a tragic reminder of the dangers of blind faith and the importance of critical thinking. The police’s swift action in arresting Mumbua and her aunt sends a clear message that such dangerous activities will not be tolerated in our society. The investigation into the Kilifi cult is ongoing, and we hope that the authorities will continue to work tirelessly to bring all those responsible to justice.
