The court has summoned Eliud Wekesa, also known as Yesu wa Tongaren. Wekesa showed up at the Bungoma Police Station as instructed by the police for the second day in a row, but was rather escorted to Bungoma Law Courts.

What accusations Wekesa will be accused of in court are still unclear.

However, according to reports, authorities want to hold Wekesa until they finish their inquiries. They also want a mental health evaluation of him.

The head of the New Jerusalem Church, which is based in the county's Tongaren Constituency, had been called in for interrogation about allegedly dubious theological doctrines, according to Bungoma Police Commander Francis Kooli.

This occurs when President William Ruto establishes a Judicial Commission of Enquiry to look into the circumstances behind the deaths of 149 persons who were allegedly Paul Mackenzie's followers.

In the 800 acres of land near Shakahola village in the Magarini Constituency, graves filled with bodies had been found.

In the aftermath of the Shakahola massacre, Eliud Wekesa, the self-declared Yesu wa Tongaren, claimed that Paul Mackenzie should be regarded as an assailant rather than a preacher.

"I can't call him a pastor because a guy who has been anointed by God can't kill. The adversary has used Paul Mackenzie to make sure that Kenyans detest God's Word," he said.

Wekesa believed that the way the Shakahola fatalities were handled may serve as a wake-up call for several such occurrences.

"There's a good chance he's not the sole individual doing this. All over the world, we'll witness several similar situations, " said Yesu wa Tongaren.

He insisted that since he "is a Saviour," the situation did not call for detention or an inquiry into his religious beliefs.

Instead of planning a witch hunt against me, Bungoma and Kenya ought to be happy that the Son of God is now nearby.

This occurs a few days after Shakahola Massacre Governor Kenneth Lusaka asked for his detention and investigation.

"I urge security agencies in Bungoma county to act quickly and look into the backgrounds of Jehovah Wanyonyi and Yesu wa Tongaren to determine if any wrongdoing against mankind is being committed," Lusaka said.
