Trade probably – Kenyan sect: some of the dead had no organs


Organs have been removed from some victims of an extreme sectarian sect in Kenya. Lead researcher Martin Munene therefore assumes a “well-organized organ trade” in which “multiple actors” were involved. So far, 112 bodies have been exhumed from a mass grave.

Some cult members were rescued alive in April in a forested area near the coastal town of Malindi (see video above). The more than 100 dead are believed to be followers of the Christian sect International Church of the Good News. The search for more victims was expected to resume on Tuesday after a pause due to bad weather.

According to previous studies, the majority of people had starved themselves on the orders of cult leader Paul Nthenge Mackenzie “to meet Jesus”. Some victims were also strangled, beaten to death or suffocated. Among them were several children.

Cult leaders arrested
It is now known that organs have been removed from some of the victims. The researchers therefore assume organ trafficking. As reported, cult leader Mackenzie was arrested. TV preacher Ezekiel Odero, who was also in prison, was released last week on bail of 1.5 million Kenyan shillings (about $10,000). Chief investigator Munene accused him of receiving “enormous amounts of money” from the cult leader’s followers.

The court in Nairobi ordered authorities to freeze 20 of the preacher’s bank accounts for an initial period of 30 days.
