More shallow graves are still to be dug up on the property of pastor Paul Makenzi, who was detained on April 14 for ties to a cult, according to Malindi sub-county police commander John Kemboi. Four more people died after they and others were found malnourished at the Good News International Church last week, bringing the overall death toll to 43.

Police have asked a court to allow them to hold Makenzi longer as investigations into the deaths of his followers continue.

Police in Malindi conducted a raid on the pastor’s property after receiving anonymous tips, where they discovered 15 malnourished persons, four of whom would subsequently die. The preacher allegedly instructed his flock to starve themselves so they may have a personal encounter with Jesus.

Police had been told there were dozens of shallow graves spread across Makenzi’s farm and digging started on Friday.

Makenzi has been on hunger strike for the past four days while in police custody.

The pastor has been arrested twice before, in 2019 and in March of this year, in relation to the deaths of children. Each time, he was released on bond, and both cases are still proceeding through the court.

Local politicians have urged the court not to release him this time, decrying the spread of cults in the Malindi area.
