Just a month after chaos broke up in the Seventh Day Adventist church over leadership positions, the officials have rubbished the claims.


The Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) executive office has now rubbished reports of alleged leadership wrangles within the church.



This comes after officers from the General Service Unit (GSU) on Saturday blocked the entrance to Nairobi Central SDA Church, leaving worshipers stranded.


"As of now they are not members of the SDA faith and no amount of intimidation will coerce the church into negotiating with strangers, " read the statement from CKC President Pastor. John Kiragu Ngunyi.


"We are concerned by the fact that police action was skewed in favor of the aggressors as a person’s right of worship cannot be abridged by the threat of other parties to break the law,” he stated.


"It is indeed the duty of the police to protect worshipers exercising their rights, rather than block the worshipers from exercising their right, on the basis that some third party may break the law."


"The church is deeply concerned with the suspicious significant access to state security machinery by the aggressors, which they seem to use to curtail freedom of worship, " added Pr. Ngunyi.

"We will seek appropriate intervention to ensure our religious liberties are respected and protected," he added.
