FORMATION OF CHURCH REGULATORY BODY BY GOVERNMENT OF KENYA
This petition had 24 supporters
In the recent years, religion is not what it used to be in the previous generation.Many fraudsters have emerged within our midst using religion as a cover up for extortion of innocent God fearing citizens.
Many people have fallen into the trap of fraudsters posing as Bishops, priests,pastors, prophets e.t.c claiming to be able to pray for them or help them solve their problems in one way or the other in exchange for money.These people even purchase land and build churches that attract long term followers that are extorted in the name of religious cultures that seem attractive to their way of life.
This indeed is a fraudulent way to earn income that the government has completely detached itself from in the excuse that being a religious leader is a calling that cannot be subject to any laws of regulation.Some of these fraudsters have been exposed through various mainstream media platforms but the majority are still out there hiding in plain sight.
My plea is that we support this petition for formation of a regulatory body to attempt to tame this vice.The body may consist of various trusted religious leaders in the country who have undergone some major scrutiny in regard to the religious organizations they head.They should also be subjected to public audits in their books of accounts.
This body will be directly answerable to the Government of Kenya and will be in charge of analysing churches and recommending regisfration certificates for them that are renewable every year subject to compliance of the set laws that will determine the cut off mark for a genuine and compliant religious organization.
Scrutiny should not only be limited to the religious organizations as a whole but also and more importantly the heads of thesd organizations and the various leadership positions in the organization.
If a religious organization is found to be engaged in malpractices that point to extortion of its followers in the name of God or for any other reason, it should face the consequences of closure or a pediod of suspension depending on the magnitude of the extortion practices.
Kindly help me get this all out!
