The Nairobi-based Pentecostal Evangelistic Fellowship of Africa (PEFA) church has been threatened with legal action by a Kenyan atheist society over alleged noise pollution.
President Harrison Mumia, who announced the announcement over the weekend, said the organization has given the church a 14-day deadline to minimize the noise. Failure to do so, he stated, will result in a legal case.
Mumia stated that their worry stemmed from multiple reports that the church in Saika, along Kangundo Road, was making too much noise, particularly on Sunday mornings and Friday nights during nighttime keshas.
“We have received numerous complaints that PEFA CHURCH, based in Saika, along Kangundo Road, between Kwa Miti and Stage 18, is generating noise pollution on Sunday mornings and Friday Nights during.
“The loud noise that emanates from ?PEFA? church is intolerable to a lot of residents living near the church.
“We are giving them exactly 14 days within which to reduce the noise pollution at Saika Church, Kangundo Road. We plan to take legal action if the concerns of the complainants are not addressed conclusively.”
